Hello.. as I said in my previous post, I was goin to upgrade my tank, and I DID.

It cost me $140 in total, but it's worth it, now, my tank looks much better.

I didn't clean the rocks, but I waited 40 minutes for my filter to make it cleaner. I guess it will be better by the next day, tho it's still cloudy..

I will post a pic, just to let you guys see my newly renovated tank.

bye!

I have a question, should I turn the light on 24/7 or just during either the day or the night?

Thanks

Your tank looks nice! You should turn the light off at night. Fish like a sense of day and night too. Smile

Hi. thanks!

lenoirrj, interestingly, my betta actually get along with my angels. My betta was in a small tank, with no conditionings..I decided to put it into the community tank when I found it sick (white thing on its head)... when I introduce the betta into the tank, angels and betta met, and they circle, just like preparing for a fight, but they never did, because my angels are much bigger than the betta. Betta is not the boss in my tank, my tetras are too fast for it, and my angels are too big for it. Even now, my betta still have to get away when the angels get close. haha... my tanks is peaceful.

I still want to add one or two more fish, fish that differentt than tetras, betta, and angels...I want a differnt colour too.

Thanks!, my tank looks much clearer now!

I just noticed recently that my betta still want to start a fight, it boasts its fins in front of my angels, but the angel don't care, and just turn away.

My angels nip on the plant a bit, hope they stop it soon... maybe I didn't give them enough food?

Hi people. Do you think my tank is big enough for 2 oscars? I want to get 2 baby oscars and raise them.

well, if properly cared for they grow three cm a month or was it three inchs a month I'm not sure. since I do hope you would take care of them properly I advise against it.
