    Mated pair would be nice, but I am not concerned with breeding. That is until I get a house with a fishroom lol.

    So I would just get two not mated angels if that is advisable.

    A 65g would be a great size for that stock. In order for it to work, the angels would have to go in last after all the other fish are well established. You also want to get angels as young as possible, the smaller (younger) the better. Getting them from a breeder is best and they must go into the tank at the same time.
    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.

    I already have a 75 gallon with 6 little blood parrots. Would 2 baby angels be ok in this set up?

    I've never kept blood parrots so I can't begin to comment on how they would be with the angels. I understand they are little now, but I don't think a 75g would be enough room to give 6 full grown BP's and 2 full grown angels enough territory to get along even if they are compatible.

    BPs Are very peaceful and can be housed with angles im just not sure if all those fish fully grown will have enough room in a 75g. Bps get quite big 6-8inches and angels get tall. LadyHobbs will surely come to this thread and let you know since she keeps/kept them and knows alot about them. I only Kept one.

    I have two angels, 16 rummeynose tetras, and 6 cories in a 45 gallon tank. Dimensions are 36"W, 24"H, and 13"D. The angels aren't a mated pair and I understand I'm lucky as I've no issues with the two angels over the last 2+ years.

    As the others have stated, they went in together and were very small. The tank was also well established before they went in as well.
    55g: Planted Tank: Firemouth, Blue Acara, Rainbow Cichlid, 15 Bloodfin Tetras, and 8 Panda Cories

    45g Planted Tank: 2 Koi Angelfish, 19 Rummy Nose Tetras, and 6 Green Cories

    20g Planted Tank: 8 Harlequin Rasboras, 4 Peppered Cories, and 8 Amano Shrimp

    Thanks everyone for the input.

    LadyHobbs actually was on of the people that help me with blood parrot info when i was setting up the 75 gallon. I did not think to mention angels in that thread, but lately i have become very interested in them.

    I think it is because I saw a few black veil angels at one of the LFS. They were really beautiful fishes.

    You should do fine. Provide sand for the corys though with caves/hiding places.

    Gets a tall 65 or 75 though. angelfish do better in such a setup.
