Thinking of adding guppies and angel fish together both will start as juveniles so i wont have a giant cilichid in tank :D

Will this be alrite?

Doubtful. The waving tails of the male guppies would be difficult for the angels to resist. They most likely would nip the tail fins of the guppies to their ruin.

I agree the tail fine of a Male Guppy IMO would be to much for the Angel to not eat. It is the same with Bettas, and barbs, and some Tetras, And some Rainbows.

It will be alright as long as you don't mind the angel eating the guppies. :c3:

The angel will eat what it can when it gets bigger.A lot of tetras have gone missing from Angel tanks here lately.Guppies are slower moving fish with those big fins.They havent got much of a chance.

angels get quite huge....soooo...by adding guppies you will give them a eat-as-much-as you can menu...........

Angels are aggressive and will eat anything that moves that will fit into their mouths. As young fish they 'might' be ok but as the angels get older you'll definitly lose the guppies.

I keep a few in my angel tanks to provide a little extra protein, never noticed them bothering the adult guppies
