    If they are small enough to fit in its mouth its snack time. Looks like its buy more. An importer of Cardinals always told me the younger you buy them the greater the survival rate.

    Your a little unlucky Rachel, I had a single large Angelfish many years with small tetras and no real issues, but they are Chiclids and small fish or shrimp are considered a meal, if you really wanted to keep the Angelfish deep bodied tetras like Black Widos or Phantom would be a better choice

    Something for you to consider. My only concern would be your tank is not a large tank and you would be limited with your inhabitants.

    Fish problems sorted, I traded the big guy in for more neons and a shoal of tiger barbs, but my latest problem is dietoms and my lower level plants are starting to look sickly and yellow, Ive upped the ferts and carbon a little, as I don't entirely trust the test strips im using.

    My only advice would be buy a good general Test Kit you do not was an expensive kits that tests every thing get one that suits your needs.

    Then post all the test results please.

    2 hours after a 50% water change plus 5ml of fert and 5ml liquid carbon
    Test results Amonia and Nitrite zero, Nitrate 10ppm, pH 7.5, kH 14°, gh 19°
    Some of the plants in the mid ground are yellowing, but I think are improving since I doubled the ferts and carbon 20171201_161852.jpg

    Regular good water changes should help your plants. I preferred 45% twice weekly.
