  • QT tank size for Angels

    I asked this question before but forget the answers.

    What is the suggested 2 week QT tank size for the following sizes?

    6 Dimes
    6 Nickels
    6 Quarters

    For just a couple of weeks, with plenty of water changes, you could get away with a 10G for the dimes and nickels. But might be best to use a 20G.

      I would think either a 20 high or a 29 if you want them all in the same tank, yes the 20 long is the same base dimensions as a 29 but you get that extra height. The 10 could work but who knows what spats they may have in the mean time in there.

        For dimes a 10g would be alright but any bigger you will want at least a 20g. I QT mine in a 75g. Note that you don't want to mix sizes in a QT tank. Smaller ones won't get as much food.

          I hadn't thought of the feeding issues for them that's a great point.

            That's what a lot of beginner angelfish breeders have issues with. You must separate the young from a batch when some start growing faster than others. The smaller ones just starve.

              I never even considered the whole feeding issues.

                  I have kept nickels and quarters with adults without issues. But for some reason most dimes are not aggressive enough and can be out competed for food.

                    From my experience the quarters do fine but sometimes even the nickles are out competed. It just depends on the fish I suppose.
