    HI IM I FIRST TIME POSTER HERE

    Ive got 3 anglefish in my 15 gallon tank for about 6-9 months now. They were only really small when I got them and are starting to get a lot bigger now and I am thinking I may need to upgrade.

    Any help would be great !!

    For a single angelfish 30 gallons is absolute minimum. For a mated pair, at least 55. For multiple angelfish that aren't paired, you are looking at a much, much larger tank.

    + to madagascariensis.

    Your angels will soon grow to the point where water quality will be an issue and you may lose one or all to poor health. additionally, as they mature they will become aggressive and start attacking and possibly killing each other. there is no where to hide in a 15 gallon tank.
    If you cannot afford or do not have the room for at least a 75 gal tank, I'd rehome 2 of the angels and set up a 30 gal for the remaining fish. If it's clear that 2 of the angels have paired up as mates then you may instead want to set up a 55 gallon for them and rehome the other.

    Thanks, they are nowhere near full size yet I don't think but I had been noticing the slightly bigger one of the three becoming a little aggressive and darting at the other two angels. I havn't noticed a pair forming yet but I want to keep all three so I will start searching for a MUCH bigger tank. Then maybe add a few other lively fish so the 3rd angel doesn't feel left out :P LOL

    try craig's list. sometimes you can find good buys.
    You'll need 2 filters - each one rated for at least 100 gallons. Make sure you transfer your filter media in your 15 over to one or both of the new filters. It won't be enough to cycle the tank but it will give it a jump start.
    Also, it would be best if you fishless cycle the new tank before adding the angels. see instructions in my sig line. And finally, make sure when you move them that you have prepared the tank with plenty of 'line of sight' barriers, ie driftwood, plants - something to give them places to tuck in behind and hopefully cut down on the aggression.
    good luck.
