Good luck with all those eggs.  Sounds like you are going to have to find some more tanks.

I keep the following with my angels. I have 8 angel now and while the tank is large, they tend to stay to the front of the glass begging for food.

36+ neons and cardinal tetras
4 black neons
10+ pangio oblongas( black "kuhli" loach)
1 RNP
18 corydoras
2 SAE's

besides the tetras the others are in the wood all day long.
The only issue I have now is the damn tetras eating the eggs as the adult angels are laying em down and spraying em.

I still have aggression issues and she is plump with eggs atleast twice a week now but they still beat the snot out of eachother, last week she took him in a lip lock and slammed him into the glass, he was twitching at her and she let him have it, since then they have made ammends and layed 3 times since then.  The little angels are the best, out of the blue the dominant male juvenile decided to take on the adult dominant male......yeah While comical at the david vs goliath level he got his butt chased all over the tank. I was quite taken back at how fast these fish actually are when they want to be, they literally can disappear from your vision when in a full blast sprint.

I appreciate this post, as I am getting ready to set a 55 with Angels (still in planning) Roughly how many could I put in a 55 and what other residence do you recommend. I plan on it being planted as well.  Please post picks i would love to see them.

Well, 2 or 3 week update.


The little angels are in like flint with the big angels, they school together, feed together, sleep together its kinda neat yet suprising that the adults had tons of aggression and adding 3 kids calmed them down. They are growing much larger and faster then I expected and are showing some very nice colors and huge fins.  Everything is in love mode, from the big angels laying and fertilizing earlier in the week all the way down to the kuhlis. I got eggs everywhere.

They are all in there and the big ones are letting the kids hang out by them now, they chase the others off so the little ones can eat still, its kinda neat, I did lose my juvenile blue angel though, he/she was never right though, didnt really take to any foods like the little ones did, it didnt even eat a single guppy fry while it was in the birthing tank. even my tiny tiny guy who didnt grow much in the 40g is doing just fine with the main tank and the big angels. It just strikes me as odd that this is happening and only getting better.


I can usually tell tank quality or stress levels so to speak by my kuhli behavior and since the littles ones got in, the big ones fight only at lights out for the spot right next to the wood and slate.

Well I took the MALE out and introduced the 4 littler ones to the big tank, let em be for a day, put the MALE back in today and so far every time he attempts to go near them the female gets defensive. The time frame/age is about right for them to think they are truly theirs. I mean Id think the same thing if I were a fish and 4 smaller ones looked like a mix of the two. I dunno I think too much.
