  1. Default 2 angelfish- 40 gallon


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey everyone :)
    I finally moved my two new additions into my newly cycled 40 gallon tank and they seem to be thriving.
    I was wondering if I could put another angelfish in there. I have a couple other tropical fish with them, two cherry barbs, two zebra danios and two platies. The tank seems kind of empty.
    Would they get territorial and fight if I only added one? can I even add more or will it over stock the tank? If I can add more, how many should I do?
    Thanks for any replies!

    I wouldn't add another angelfish. Any time you add a cichlid to your tank there is a good chance it will fight with the existing fish, especially if the other fish is also a cichlid. Instead, you should add more cherry barbs and danios to the group. They are both schooling fish and would appreciate more of their own species in the tank.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    A forty gallon tank (unless one of the tall type tanks) is a bit tight for two angels to properly grow. Also, hiding places (plants - real or fake, woods, rocks and the like) are a good idea since one of the fish may get rather aggressive towards the other.

    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    Alright, thanks for all the helpful responses. :) I'lll add 5 more cherry barbs and 5 more zebra danios if that won't overstock the tank. Could I keep a ram or two with them or will they fight?

    A ram or two should work as long as there are plenty of plants and some driftwood for them to find nice hidey holes to claim and run to in case the angel takes a dislike to them. I will caution you though, keep an eye on the angelfish, he may or may not allow more fish into his tank. Be prepared for possible aggression against any new comers and have a back up plan in place.

    I'll see how well they get along with more cherry barbs and zebra danios first before adding more cichlids. From what I've seen, they're pretty docile fish. Both male and they love each other, always close together and I've never seen them fight. They've never tried to go after any of my fish and they are much smaller than the angels, so hopefully they'll be okay with rams.

    It will probably be fine. Many people keep rams and angels together with no problems. I was even considering it myself at one point. Angels are so unpredictable though I just wanted you to know there is a risk and watch for possible aggression.
