I received my order on Monday Dec. 7th. I ordered 3 dwarf angels, a potters, flame angel and flameback angel. I have kept multiple angels in previous setups and knew that with dwarfs adding them together was the best way to curb aggression. When I received them along with some cleanup critters, they all were very alert and beautiful in the bag from what I could see in the dimly lit room. I was cautiously optimistic. I followed the acclimation procedure to a T. After 1.5 hrs the parameters matched and I netted them and placed them in the display. Within minutes all three were already grazing on the rocks. Over the next few days there was definitely some aggression, but now it has settled down, and I catch them grazing together. They are extremely healthy. Bright eyes, bright colors, not fat, but not lethargic either, nice and healthy looking. Wonder color on all three. The flameback is eating flake, but the other two are not yet. I am not concerned because they all graze non stop, and there is enough micro growing to sustain them until they get a taste for other foods. I will be trying mysis and brine later this week.

I will not hesitate to order from Blue Zoo again. It has been a fantastic experience.

Thanks.

Here are some pictures of the livestock I received.

Not really Blue Zoo related, but did you introduce them all together? Any issues with aggression? I ask because I have a single potters angel, and I'd love to get another (and then hope against hope for a pair...)

Any tips?

I'm lucky enough to live near Blue Zoo, and hope to make use of their will call window soon :)

I would only introduce together.

I guess I should have read better, I see that you did introduce them together. Woops! Thanks anyway!
