Yep I'd say this was a fair idea. I have read that they prefer to be in shoals however in my lfs where I bought them they couldn't care less about each other, and I have only 2 in my tank (damn the lfs for not having more when I went back for another few ) and they seem to be getting along just great.

Oh no! I'm not arguing. I thought that what you suggested was a good idea. Like I said the ones in my lfs couldn't care less about each other. Mine are in with a bunch of catfish and are fine, just going about their own business.

I wonder if their lack of shoaling behaviour has anything to do with them not being able to see each other? I would have thought they might otherwise sense each other but after thinking about it, form this thread, I'm not sure.

Would there be a way to increase the # of fish to 1.31 fish per gallon of water? A 55 has a large surface area, and maybe if I added aeration stones and upgraded to more powerful filters.... could it be done safely or would it just stress the fish too much? I can upgrade to a 75 but I would rather not unless it is absolutely neccesary...

~Fear is nothing but the lack of knowledge.

How would you like someone to stab you with a needle the size of a pencil and inject you with flourescent dyes??

aerators help a little ... better or many smaller filters work better ... in my opinion the best it to have a planted aquaruim .... in my opinion ur not overstocked if i got ur fish list right.

4 angels
4 rams
a school of tetras ao some other red fish.

if thats it ur fine
