    I would up the schools you have in there, and maybe one angel, I've only had angels once, but they fought a lot. Seems to me though anything in there is big or fast enough to not get beat up by an angel. Nice little vid, nice tank, but Definitely add some more fish :)

    I would do only 1, unless you can find a mated pair. They can get pretty agressive

    Nice tank, Benji! I'd go with one Angel, and increase the schools you have...I think four Angels could give you problems...

    sorry, should have gone back to read that properly....was it a new setup? and were there tetras in there?
    Id stear clear of angels until you have an good, established tank - they can be quite hard to keep, and prefer more established conditions. They also do better in groups for 5 upwards.

    Also, angels can get quite large - so I wouldnt mix them with anything that can fit in their mouths (like neon tetras, glowlight tetras etc)...When the angels are big enough, they wont think twice about making a meal of bitesized tidbits!

    Clowns and tiger barbs also do better in groups.

    From what I remember though, the tank looked lovely! Keep up the good work!
