    Hi! I have had my angelfish for at least 3 years and more recently it has started to be aggressive to all its tankmates. Even the red tail shark that has been in the tank the whole time.

    29 gal tank
    1Angel & 1 red tail shark both about 4-6inches
    2 small dwarf pleco something?
    3 neons

    The tank is clean we haven't had issues. Do you think I need a bigger tank?

    Agreed, a larger tank for your angel and shark (angelfish would be fine if he wasn't becoming aggressive, I don't have experience with sharks and believe they absolutely need more horizontal room)

    For immediate temporary help, do you have plants and/or decor to break up the tank, create territory for your angel and hideouts for the tetras? I would add at least 3 more neons, preferably get it up to a group of ten. They are not heavy on the bioload, feel and act much safer in a big group.

    Thanks so much! I do have artificial plants and hiding spaces. I'll start looking for deals on tanks.
