Angels are imminent

Post  Brian1 on Fri 28 Mar 2014, 21:01

I have done a water test today and all my parameters are spot on, So koi Angels are imminent, I would like to know, my temp is at 75 is this ok, or should it be more, would you leave the tank for a longer period, and I have blood worm and mixed flake, what else can you suggest, many thanks.......

I'd definitely wait a while, tanks can take several weeks for the filter to mature, and whilst angels are moderately tollerant of ammonia & nitrite, adding too many fish too soon is a recipe for disaster. If the Ammonia & nitrite readings are still zero in 10 days time, I'd consider adding them then.

The filter is mature Pterophyllum it has been transferred from my old tank, of 3 years in to the new one, just as it is, so I would think it should be ok, however if you still think I should wait I will...........

I thought I'd read that, but wasn't sure.

In which case, chances are all would be fine if you introduced them now, but personally, I'd continue to monitor ammonia & nitrite for a few more days, and if all was still looking good by the middle of next week I'd be happy to introduce them then.

75 is fine in a general community, but if you're hoping they'll breed, raising the temperature to 78 - 82 will encourage them!
