When buying angelfish...
When buying angelfish for my 55gal, can I get different types? And if I do, will they still pair up if they are different?
125Gal: 7 Silver Dollars, 1 Albino BN Plecos, 1 Green Terror, 1 Gold Severum, Red Severum, 8 Rio Cahals, and 2 Festivum
55Gal: 3 German Blue Rams, 2 Bolivian Rams, 1 Super Red Pleco, 9 Bloodfin Tetras, and 9 Oto Catfish
29Gal: Quarentine/Hospital Tank
20Gal: Female Pastel Ball Python
Agree. But remember, all fish should be acquired at the same time, and be close to the same size to negate bullying possibilities. This applies whether the fish are silver, marble, black, or whatever. All of these varieties are developed from the one wild species, Pterophyllum scalare. To the best of my knowledge, the other two species are only available in the natural form (and will be wild caught in most cases, unlike the scalare variants).

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
