A few months back I was in my LFS and saw these gorgeous angelfish; they must have been babies cause they were tiny but they've been playing on my mind ever since.............sooooo I have a 2ft tank and was wondering whether one of these would be able to live long term with a few platys?

Thanks :0

Welcome back Angels do better when they are kept in a group of five or more. The minimum tank requirement would be a 55 gallon. Unfortunately they would not work in the tank you have now. Maybe it is time for another tank
