    Angel fish today are not the angel fish of when I was a kid. I grew up on angels and even bred them succesfully but now I see so many strains! Iím literally dying for a tank with altum.

    Yours are beautiful.

    Thank you very much, trose!
    These came from a friend of mine who imports direct from Colombia and other places.

    I have to admit............my current group is my second shot at them. My first shot was a total, and expensive, failure. This current group had a really rough start, and I only have eight remaining of the 15 that I received.

    I feel like I'm walking on eggshells around them still!!

    What caused the rocky start? I'm sorry that you've lost a few. How tall are those pictured?

    The fish pictured above average around 7-8 inches tall, and a couple are about 9 inches now.

    The rocky start just had to do with the fish that I received. As soon as I saw something that resembled disease I immediately medicated. I think that was a bad move. There's a lot to be said for just plain old clean water and a good diet. I'm finding that less is more with altums......including less Prime FYI!!
