HI there...
was wondering if there is anyone out there that has Angel fish for sale here in Victoria. Seems the only thing i see in stores is black with white or white-ish ones....need some with more COLOR!

I think they might still have a flame angel at Safari. They're really nice and colorful and they don't grow that big either.

fw....sorry

Black and white are pretty much it for angels.. might find gold/yellowish or white but that is about all they come in.

bummer.... I have 1 male and 3 female guppies, 6 neon tetras, 6 glo tetras, 2 algie eaters and 1 albino cory and wanted to have a few more ' colorful' fish that don't eat plants and are well-tempered and non-aggressive. I thought Angels might work well but i guess not. Parrot fish would be awsome but a little rich for my pocket book right now.... :frown:

If you want color in the FW variety you might want to try african cichlids. They are more aggresive as you probly know. What you may not have known is that angel fish are also cichlids (south american) and can be aggresive with some smaller species of Fw fish.

I've always liked discus too for color but they're fairly high maintenance.

did you know that angel fish will eat tetras if the angels are big enough and the tetras are small enough. :eek:

my brother kept puting tetras in with his angels and we could not figure out why they the tetras just seemed to vanish. only the big ones would servive.
