View Full Version : Addition of Angels Possibly?

01-17-2008, 08:37 PM
Could I add an angel or two to my 29g tank minus the danios? I would have an angel or two, 10 neons, 3 otos, and 6 cories in all then. Is that possible? Thanks for the info and advice.

How tallis it. Angels like tanks atleast 14 inches tall.

angels need 15g each so you might be a bit overstocked

I don't remember how tall the tank is at the moment, I will have to get back to you tomorrow. By time the angels could go in, there would be the 10 neons, 3 otos, and 5 pgymy cories. So probably overstocked if I add even one angel. Can the handle being alone or would I need at least two of them?

How Big are Pygmy Cories

I want to say they are around an inch, give or take a little.

For the best conditons you would not want more then 1 angel in a 29gal and only if there were almost nothing else in there.The corys would be ok.The neons would be ok for a little while until the angel got big then they would stand the risk of being snacks.Yes angels are happy alone.

I wouldn't like to put an Angel in anything less than a 50g - if the tank is too low also the growth will be stunted or the fins will be ragged from dragging over the substrate...

The Neons & Pygmy Cories could end up as lunch as it reaches adulthood as someone already said.

I also don't like Angels on their own.. they are schooling fish and live in groups... they are very intelligent and like stimulation and I find that with at least 2 they have at least each other to squabble with and entertain each other

I've heard enough to not go with angels at least in this tank. I will look to Gourami now. Thank you all.
