Angelfish are not very aggressive at all, except amongst themselves. And 5 angels is a lot for permanent stocking in a 55 gallon.
Okay? I have been told that 5 is the number I need for that size tank. If 5 is a lot then how many would be good for that size tank?
The tank is empty right now well has substrate and some driftwood in it. It has been running for almost 2 days as of right now with a carbon pad soo I could get the tannin color out going to take that pad out tomorrow and I will be getting my plants (40 of them total) I am hoping on wednesday. Plan on planting the tank then. If Cherry barbs are bad cause of fin nipping could you tell me some good fish mates to have in the tank with the Angelfish Please?
