Thread: My angelfish at war?

I've actually had the opposite experience with Angelfish. Granted mine is pretty small (little more than 2 inches), he gets nipped and picked on by........CARDINAL tetras. I was hoping his semi-aggressive behaviour would encourage the cardinals to shoal. He does pick at one of the platies every once in a while during feeding times, though

You should see the juvie angels I bought a couple months ago. They poke and run at each other "already" as small as they still are. It's so funny watching them trying to be tough. I actually bought 3 silvers one month then added 4 more a month later. The silver are big already. 3 inches maybe.

I have a silver angel that would kill any new angel i added to the tank. She killed two other silvers that way. The third time i added a marble that was bigger than her and that curbed her aggression. They actually formed a pair and mated. About 30 fry survived which are in a tank by themselves and now 2 months old and doing well. I have the pair in a community tank where they unfortunately picked up the bad habit of eating their eggs probably because they feel insecure having eggs around the other fishes. They don't pick on their tankmates just chase them away if they get too close, no nipped fins or anything.
