So I have a delimma about tanks...

So, Evidently I have 2 pairs of angels.... GRR.

They can't both stay in the 75G, as I just witnessed them trying to tear each other apart. I don't want them to kill each other so my options are!

A. (my favorite option)

-Take down 2 tanks ( 30 bowfront and 20G high)
- Find a craigslist tank (50-60G) for about 100-150$.

B. Take down one tank, (20G or 30) and set it up as a breeder tank... (don't want to, it's too small)

C. get rid of 1 pair of angels...really don't wanna do, they are pretty awesome!


If i do and parents allow me to do Option A, I will have a 75G, ~50G and a 15G. Seems like a good deal to me.

1 pair in a 30 would be alright. It's not ideal, but it would be faster than getting a 50-60 purchased and setup. You could do that while you shop for a bigger tank and wait for it to cycle.

I'm trying to talk to my parents about combining the tanks. My mom's like "NO MORE FISH TANKS". I'm proposing that I take 2 down for 1 slightly bigger one.

(Mainly for the pleco and angels goodbeing)

I have a friend that has an old 55G that she may pass down for little or nothing...wish me the best.

Well, I'm not a 'kid' per say. (18 almost 19) But maitainence is fine. I pretty much have a weekly routine down pat. Everyonce in a while I'll have a mishap, but nothing major.

The thing is, the 20 and 30 gallon are right next to eachother, so basically it's like having a 50G already there.
