    I disagree. 5 angels in a 60? 4 gouramis? 4 SAE? I think this isn't very well planned out. The angels need renumbering, probably the 4 gouramis too. Don't SAE get ridic aggressive towards everything as they get older?

    Yea i`m more worried about the gouramis not about the angels...
    The sae aren't that agressive and they remain pretty small afaik (4 inch?) and usually play with eachother not bothering other fish...tough if someone experienced something else do tell

    Isn't he keeping both tanks? He can move fish around that way.

    5 Angels in a 60 g is fine. I think we're overestimating how much room angels need.

    Each to his own, but even a 29G is too small for 2 angels.

    I think SAE get aggressive and only algae when they are young, but that might be CAE. I don't remember clearly.

    I wouldn't do gouramis and angels in the same tank.

    But like I said, each to his own...

    *edit - with the small tank leaving, this stocking makes even less sense, but I hope it works out for you*

    60 gallon isn't that big. But I would suggest 4 if they pair up. If you get 2 pairs and have a lone angel I feel like it would get beat up.

    I was referring more to their tendency to be aggressive with several angels in close quarters. I just think you are asking for problems with that many.

    To be fair though, 60 gallons isnt "a lot" of room for 5 angels, thats maxed.

    Also, If you cycle this tank with 2 danios and then add 5 angels, you are going to have a severe mini-cycle. I would make it 6 danios, and after your finished cycling add one angel worth of bioload every 2 weeks or so
