Okay, I was just wondering if there was an issue with the angels themselves, nothing's set in stone. I wouldn't get the discus for a few months until the tank is established. I don't mind the money- I'm getting most of the tank setup for free. The commitment's not really an issue,either. I guess I'll have a better idea in a few months.
I would love to do an all discus tank someday, that sounds like fun.
So a full grown pair of silver dollars would be too big for a 30 gallon then? I know the 1" per gallon rule, but is there a general rule about how big a full grown adult should be to be comfortable in a 30 gallon? And in general,would a small school of guppies and a small school of tetras be okay? If so, what else would do well with them?
