i have a 10 gal tank currently cycling.
i was wondering if getting 3 corys and one angelfish would cause any problems, ive never owned an angelfish before.

also wondering if i have enough room for a gourami, (also what kind of gourami would get along with corys and angelfish best)

but if mixing these fish is completely ridiculous, please let me know, im somewhat new at this =]

your best friend is re-search


but for a 10 gallon (usual dimensions)

I would not get a gourami or angelfish as they will grow quick and not have enough room

how big do angelfish generally get?

They get to be about 7-8 inches tall (counting fins) and 4-5 inches long

A 10 gallon is too small for angelfish but yes, corys and angels can go together.

Angels get around 5 inches and grow fast so please take into consideration what size tank they can go in. They also like lots of plants to hide in. A 10 gallon can not give you that.

As RobbieG mentioned, larger when you count those fins! I was just giving body size.

At least you inquired first before buying. So many run out and just buy and then try to figure out what in heck to do with them. Good job!

i was just wondering, can dwarf gouramis and some small angels go in the same tank? i like both species and was hoping they would get along!!!

I think they may fight.
Anyways, for a 10 gallon tank you should be able to get like 1 gourami and some corys if you really wanted to.
