    Not what I meant.If he's doing regular water changes the tank water won't be that dirty, more like it's seasoned 850. If the fish were doing fine in it it obviously is fine also. Tossing them into...

    Well, once again I'm probably gonna tick some people off here. Look, your fish are used to the water in the 20. Do them a favor, put at least half the water from the 20 in the new tank and fill the...

    I would be more concerned with the high nitrates right now. Each time you change 50-% of the water the Nitrate-level will drop in half and you need to get below 40 ppm on the nitrates. I would do a...

    Indian Woods is correct, I used to breed them myself a long time ago. I had six full-grown adults in a 55 gallon show tank. Happy, peaceful group, never any aggression.

    But, they do need some room.

    Can't overfilter unless it causes too much turbulence. I run three filters in a 55. An Aqueon50, a Fluval U1 and a large Sponge-Filter(The Fluval is a good-sized sponge too).

    ijankrom, while it's true that your tank, at 24" is slightly taller than a 55, the 55 is over twice as long at 48". That is a whole lot more swimming room and, believe me, angels will use every inch...
