Quick question on combining my tanks.
Hi everyone, I have two 55 gallon tanks, a community tank and an angelfish tank. Since my house has been seeming small, I want to get rid of 1. Im keeping the angels, so my question is which of my community fish would be ok with the angels? There are 6 angels only in the angel tank. In the community tank there are 6 black widow tetras, 6 rosy tetras, 6 harlequinn rasboras, 6 otos, and 6 cories. When combined the tank will be pretty heavily planted. So if someone could let me know which of the community fish to rehome, because as far as I know, it would just be the rasboras, but I would like to make sure.
The only species mentioned that should not be combined with angelfish is the Black Widow Tetra. This species, as noted in our profile [click the shaded name] is known to nip fins of sedate fish. While some do and some don't, I would not risk it; the stress of just having this species in the tank even if no physical contact occurs can harm the angels.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
