    Too fast and active for the angels. Same with neon dwarf rainbows. And if the rainbows aren't big enough, they will be food.

    Yah rainbows was an idea but I really wasn't going to get them. I have a question about bio-load though. My experiences is I really only with small fish so I don't know to much about how many medium sized fish you can stock in a tank. If I got 3 angels maybe like 6 to 9 barbs would I still be able to put like 8 to 10 corydoras on the bottom? Like I said filtration will be 650 GPH from two HOB filters.

    Would a pictus catfish live with angels and barbs? I'm talking about the 4 to 5 inch kind not the 12 inch ones.

    In a 55gal? You could certainly do 10-12 corys. I would even say 10-12 barbs would be fine.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    Yep, that'll work. As to your pictus cat question... I've never heard of a smaller pictus cat. Isn't there only one pictus?

    Nothing to fear about ordering fish online, from reputable dealers. The shipping cost can be off-putting, but you have so much more to choose from.

    I've ordered from Wet Spot, Gunpowder Aquatics and Aqua View Design. All fish received have been in great condition and the customer service has been outstanding. The only drawback to buying fish online is the shipping costs.
