Blue Marbles and Blue Angels

Things have become interesting in the tank where two angelfish couples live. With the koi angels moved into the Honeymoon Suite, the blue marbles have staked out one side of the tank, where they have been diligently cleaning the leaves on an amazon plant. That is usually the prelude to laying eggs.

Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the tank, the blue angels have taken up residence. No cleaning on that side (yet) but it's early.

However, when it comes time to feed, they all move toward the center of the tank. Angels' mouths are in the center, which means they can feed from the surface of the water, in the water, or from the gravel. Mine have always preferred to get their flakes off the surface. I feed them TetraColor flakes.
