    Yesterday I set up my 20 gallon tank to keep some Angels in. I originally had an AC110 on the tank and crushed coral as the substrate. The AC110 was producing too much water flow so I replaced it with the new Tetra Whisper EX45 which I like so far. I replaced the crushed coral with black Eco Complete. There aren't any plants in it yet but I'll be adding some soon. This was take not long after adding the Eco Complete but surprisingly the filter cleared up the water pretty quickly. The Angels are still a little shy and are spending most of their time by the driftwood.


    Disclaimer: I do not recommend or suggest adding 10 Angels to a 20 gallon tank as a long term home.

    :) I'll add a plant today, then it'll be in the correct area. :p

    I bumped up the temp to about 86 last night and this morning the Angels are mostly out around the tank. There are still 3 that are still hiding most of the time.

    Jake named one of them Furby. :)

    Yeah, they were hanging out in the top left corner since they were just added. Today they're moving all around the tank.

    I will. :D The tank is cloudy today from the huge bioload I've placed on the tank at once. I'm going to do a water change tonight to help clear that up. I added some of NeutraFin's new "Cycle" to the aquarium to try that out. My ammonia was pretty low (.25ppm) before adding it to begin with so I'm waiting to see later tonight how everything tests.
