There are 7 larger ones from Rio Atabapo and 4 slightly smaller ones from Rio Inirida. All are just over one year old.

Wow those are nice! I just bought a bigger tank because I want a few angels. What is that plant with the single ruffled round leaves on long stems?

220g, just like it says in the signature.

They eat freeze dried bloodworms, blackworms, and plankton. So far they refuse flake.

Those angels of yours are beautiful. My angels wont eat flake either, Have you had any problems with bloating feeding freeze dried food? I do the frozen cubes by hikari bloodworm, beefheart, and spiril loaded brineshrimp.....the eat bloodworms like a swarm of piranha.

I have not had any bloating but thank you for making me aware of the issue. I try to keep feedings rather light and more frequent, sprinkle a little in throughout the day. They are learning to be more opportunistic and meet me at the glass. I have used frozen occasionally.
