No way! lol You know if you really insist on giving breeding cories a go,mine went into a breeding frenzy when I changed more than 5 gallons of water in their 20 gallon tank...I did that once a month. It worked. Too well. lol

Silver dollars belong in a tank that is at least a 75 gallon tank for the first one. They are big fish when they grow up. Try thinking the size of an adult bluegill just to get an idea.

A 25 gallon tank is not big enough for a fish that measures 6 inches plus the length of fins and tail. A very large angel that measures more than 4 inches before counting the fins and tail is almost unheard of and would be very marginal in a 25 gallon tank. My large angels are in a 120 gallon tank and are not too small at all for it. They look just right in a tank that size. Although they look quite large at over 5 inches tall, their body length is only about 2 1/2 inches. A 6 inch SL angel would be a monster that would look like it was a foot tall.
