    Added two more angelfish yesterday and their pecking order have been sorted out so everything is calm again

    I saw after adding the new fish that one of the older ones and a new one developed these dark spots by the eyes as seen in the last picture. Do anyone know why?

    Probably a form of intimidation, trying to show dominance, lots of fish change color when you add new fish, nothing to worry about.

    Lighting is a led from a company called aquashine led. It's not some sophisticated piece of equipment, but it's much cheaper and it make me see my fishes and it grows my plants. It's a single 3foot red blue and white light.

    I've got a cascade 1500 filter on there.

    I use some seachem flourish and root tabs. I didn't have any algea problems until i removed my two cae but i will get some ottos to fix this. My lights are on from 7 in the mornings till atleast eleven or twelve in the evenings, as I am a student, I should probably get a timer.
