It's insane there...
I would LOVE to get a group but people tell me that I will be swapping fish, and having some killed. And I just don't want to go through that. I'm an animal person, and once i get something it's mine. lol But if you think it's doable I'll go for it!
I was wondering what to do with the 75 too. I think I've got the bioload room. could I add 3 or so to it with the other juvie? It's got a good bit of plants in there...
You are more likely to have aggression issues with only two or even three fish than 5. There is less chance of a really dominant bully harming the others if there are more of them. And it is natural, and fish in my experience always are less stressed and therefore healthier when maintained along the lines of their natural habitat.
You mentioned other community fish earlier, and that is possible, several species of tetras but just avoid the small ones like neons and cardinals that tend to look like "lunch" to angels. Any of the Hyphessobrycon species would be good. And bottom fish as I mentioned before.
