Angels in my 75g planted tank

I thought I'd show you some pictures of my angels. They just got out of the quarantine tank and into the 75g. These were quick shots, next time, I need to clean the glass before taking pictures

Enjoy

They're already starting to show some orange. I think some of them are going to be spectacular looking.

A Pentax KP. The lens was a Pentax 100/2.8 macro.

I think if he oranges up as he matures he will be a stunner.

They look good. I have had so many times where I thought I had wiped the glass down completely and then my best picture has a dried water mark marring the shot that I didn't even notice!

Beautiful babies you have there!

I went with 6. They started out between dime and big nickel, they're now big nickel to half dollar.

Bump: A couple of new photos. One full tank on the 75G. The other is my 20L with swordtails that other than too much hardware visible came out well. I'm pleasantly surprised with the plants as the 20L is a low-tech tank.

A few new pics. I now have three tanks running, the 75g, the 20 long, and the 10g betta. A couple of pictures of all three

Beautiful! Your angels are coloring up nicely. How big are they now? I was amazed at how quickly mine grew from dime-sized to sexually mature. They are angelic at first, but once those hormones kick in they can be murderous monsters to their fellow angels...

That betta is a stunner. What kind is it?

The betta is a combtail. Someone on the forum here suggested going with one that was active looking. My LFS was low on bettas, so they had them in community tanks. There were two that caught my eye, this was the most active and curious, so I went with him. It took him a few days to get used to his new tank, but now he's having a good time in it.

The angels are growing. The two biggest ones are now half dollar size +, the smallest about quarter size. One of the smallest ones seems to hide a lot. He's the one by the spiderwood and was the one I was worried was being bullied, so I may pull him and either put him in the 20L or pull him and the other small one and put them in the 40B when I get it set up. I'm trying a new strategy when feeding. Most of the angels will come to the front of the tank at feeding time. I'm starting to drop a few pellets in the back to make sure he's getting his share, and we'll see how goes. The fact that he's growing is a good sign though. At what size do they become sexually mature?
