Angel got beat up

Postby B.Roberson » Wed May 16, 2012 11:35 pm

So I've had my 38 gsl community tank for about 3 yrz.
I've gone thru a few losses here and ther.
I've ended up with 2 angels 2 tiger loaches and 1 clown loach. 1 eel that just comes out at night.
Today my clown loach was beating the #%$& out of my BIG angel. Eating him. Fins missing. Holes in him .. Dang. I had to euthanize my angel.
That angel was always the bully. Much bigger! Picked on the smaller angel. Any thoughts?
Thanks

Not sure what the question is. Clown Loaches get pretty big and like to be kept in groups. In that way, they interact with each other and keep themselves occupied. A 38 gallon tank is not big enough to keep several Clown Loaches.

Angels are somewhat aggressive in the own right and should be kept in a small group to spread the aggression. I have 2 Angels that couldn't share a 90 gallon tank together, so they had to be separated.
150 Gallon:
Uaru, Geophagus, Turquoise Severum, Angelfish, Silver Dollars
90 Gallon:
Bolivian Rams, Angelfish, Rummynoses, Corys, Dwarf Loaches, Badis Badis
