i was wondering, what is a healthy number of angelfish in a 55gal aquarium. i havent decided much of anything specific about the equipment yet, so any additional info is welcomed

unless you want alot of fights, only get a pair

i agree with cocoa but then again i put 8 angels in my 55 and then seperated them when they paired and put them in to breeding tanks,

i also have a veil tail angel very pretty fish

the male has a straighter line under the mouth and the female is rounder and abit fatter in this area


this is a pic of my male and female angels
the yellow has that straight line under his mouth

that is my female and if you look in the same area she is rounder

i thought this might be a bit confusing so i try to explain this way
you will see the bottom fins on the yellow one well straight above them is the line i am talking about sorry if i have confused you

hope this helps
