Need help creating tank with angels!

Ok here is what i need you to do: i am going to give u a list of fish i want and you say how many of each to keep in my 112 gallon aquarium. Here are the fish: angels, balas, clown loaches, platies, gouramis, zebra danios, and rummy nose tetras. remember this setup is based around the angels.

Okay, just so you can stop making threads, and you can do this at your own leisure, keep this rule in mind: Generally, 1 inch of fish should be allowed PER GALLON. Example: a 6 Gallon tank could hold 1 6" fish, or 6 1" fish. This is assuming that these fish are full grown. I believe this rule is aimed towards keeping the bioload and pollution levels within manageable limits, not based on preference of each fish (which you will also need to take into account when selecting your specimens).

In theory, you have 112" worth of space to work with. Research all these fish, and note their MAXIMUM sizes, and then work it out so their max sizes add up to roughly 100" - 112". The type of fish you want will leave you with few fish, so try to get only a couple of big ones, and then use the rest of the space for smaller fish.

Right, and once you post a thread, try not to post again, Also, what kind of filter do you have? If you're going to get a bala, then probably just 1 is enough big fish, also keep in mind that angel fish will eat small fish, and a bala might to, I don't know if balas would eat small fish on purpose, but I know that balas are big, so there could be a accidental inhalation. :D If your tank is less than 48" long, 20" wide, or 14" tall, then balas wouldn't be a good idea. I've had both balas, and angels, both are aggressive to other fish, mainly angels. it may of just been my bala, but most angles aren't angels. :D
