    I bought 5 angels yesterday. they are in my 30 gallon with the small gold angel
    .
    I will have to. Provide a bigger tank I shopped on kijiji and found a 90 gallon with stand no top will have to find a glass top .
    I still have my Fluval led light that will set on top of glass
    So I am looking for a filter and a top .
    Going to. Do dirt with sand or gravel on top I have a fabric to put between the dirt and sand It seems to be working in my 30 gallon I had no trouble cleaning the gravel today at all .
    May take me bit time to get 90 gallon up and running .

    If you can't find a top for it, glass cutting companies can cut one to size. I had to do that for part of my 180G.

    I did not get the 90 it was to far away so I got a 55 instead. I have to decide on plants or no plants going to be a Angel tank so plants should be fine we’re is good place to get plants?
    Dirt or fluorite. Under sand . Would like some vale’s java fern ,amazon sword some moss
    Easy to grow . My light will be my old Fluval plant light for now .
    what kind filter does every one use in there Angel tank ?
    probably a canister or hangs on .

    In my angel tank that has 8 albino Dantum Angels (4 pairs),I have a API Filstar XP XL rated high output.I use it on a 76 gal bowfront.I bought it for my 125 six footer but I would have needed two of those to do the job for that tank.I have also used a AC 110 on a 55 gal and it did a great job.I found that the AC 70 that is rated for a 55 did not do the job very well.I have been looking for a nice strain of blue angels for some time now too.

    I use a canister filter on my discus / angelfish tank. 125 gallon with FX5. With a diy spray bar with holes that are large enough to allow them to point up at the water surface with out actually “spraying”, give good water distribution, surface agitation and keep the water calm at the same time.

    On my 120 long (5ft long), I use an FX4 and an Eheim Pro4 600. That one has a variety of fish, not just angels. The tank is very clean and has a good flow. Some would say using the two canisters together is overkill, but the tank is incredibly stable with both running.

    I never used just one filter if there is an option to use more. I have two xp3 canisters on my 125G and 4 on my 180G, because why not.

    Yep, I agree. I like the higher filtration aspect. Having more than filter acts as a redundant system in case one experiences a failure. Not to mention the bacteria colonization.

    Exactly.
    The only tank I don't have two filters is my little ten gallon with a betta. I can't fit another HOB on it without cutting the canopy. And I dont really want an internal filter.
