hello and welcome!!

You could always look around for some kind of "beach themed" background for the tank and maybe find some small beach chairs or a small tiki hut....somehting along those lines you may find at a party store

are you planning on upgrading tanks soon? An angel fish needs atleast a 30G tall tank, I'm also not sure on the compatibility with the dwarf gourami and the angel.....just something to think about.

Welcome to fishforum!

I don't know how far you want to go with the theme, but I have a 15 gallon with sand, a blue background, and some real plants that always reminds me of a beach. If you want more decorations that actually look like beach stuff, then you could always check any aquarium stores. I'd be careful with anything that is not intended for aquariums though, they can poison your fish.

There is tons of information on the net....I was more concered with the lack of room in a 15G tank for an angel fish....

Sounds like a good idea, just make sure like the above poster said, not to use anything noti approved for aquariums....most glues are toxic, so be careful!!! send some pics when you get it together

They sell palm tree aquarium decorations at the LFS. You could add a few of those around the tiki hut.

I have to say i agree with JohnnyD44 about the angelfish. Eventually it will need a larger tank.
