That link isn't giving the right information.... scalare are in wild caught form and als in the many man made colors... I have never seen a grown Angelfish smaller than 6 inches - top fin to bottom fin... Altums can grow much larger.

I have never heard of seen of dwarf angels and I hope I don't :ezpi_wink1:

No such thing as dwarf angels.Leopoldis are smaller the scalares but not by a big amount.Expect a well cared for angel to be at least6-7" from top fin tip to bottom tip.Mine is 6".

It is a pic of my striped raphs head peaking from his driftwood cave,his name is Smaug i am his servant.
As for your goby question,are the 2 compatible for water type?Are not gobys brack fish?As for eating them,if they fit in the mouth it is food.

Altums can grow much larger.

Got that right. I had six Altums between 18 and 22 inches tall, namby-pamby prima donna pain in the tuckus fish they were. Grew them from the size of a quarter. Big ole tank, dark as pitch, pH low 5's, sheesh what was I thinking. Far more trouble than they were worth. Sold them to a guy in my aquarium club that'd been drooling over them for months for $3600. Put a bunch of Rasboras in that tank; its cypranid city now.
Good wild caught scalare can top out at 8 inches tall. The man-made hybrid what nots have trouble reaching six.
