Hey hey,

I've got a angelfish, 4 rasboras, a african frog and a chinesse alge eater, and to spice up the look up of the tank I wanted to add in a discus. Now is this a bad idea due to the angelfish and rasboras? If anyones done this before let me know! The woman at my store said it should be fine, but angels and discus like different ph levels. So any ideas would be nice thanks.

I would say no off the bat, unless the tank is 150 or above..

Then I guess I will have to pass on the discus. I'm looking for color for my tank, if you got any suggestions let me know. The tanks a 29 gallon.

Try a species of gourami, like a dwarf neon or a gold gourami. They color up the tank really quickly.
