Thanks. I bought a Mystery Snail and 3 ottos. Ottos appeared to be starving when I got them. This morning all 3 have fat little belly's.

Wink Ready to stock my tank!

Ok, my 90 gal planted tank has been up and running now for 3 weeks. I have added a CO2 diffuser and it's been going for about 1 week. I should be getting my new high intensity light any day (it had to be ordered). I currently have 2 dwarf gourami's, 13 rasboras and 3 otto's. What I would love to get is 6 - 8 angelfish. I am looking for tips, advise, feedback anyone out there. Is it too soon? Will I have any compatibility issues, etc. Is there any other fish I should consider?

8 is probably too many I wouldn't do anymore then 5-6 angelfish. Just be aware that once you get a 2 of them paired off.. and you will, they will claim the tank for themselves and will attack the other angelfish for sure and maybe the other fish as well, so you will have to rehome some of them.

Angels are a no no with gouramis. You can read what would work with the Angels here http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/p...are-angelfish/ in the profile section but you would have to move the gouramis in order to have them. If you decide to go with Angels I would do 6 that way if you have a pair that becomes mated the others will have more room to get away when they are breeding.

I thought by getting several of them at 1 time, I would not have that kind of problem. Maybe I should rethink the angels. I would like to have a variety of fish in my tank and I would like them all to live in peace.

Honestly with a tank your size I think you would be ok with 6 angels. And getting them all at the same time will help I have researched them extensivly as I would like to add a group to my 55 but right now I have neons so I can't have the angels because the Angels may eat them when they grow up. ; )

Angels should all be the same size and added at the same time, I believe. You'll still get possible aggression issues when they mature. I had to relocate a very aggressive male from my 55 recently. The remaining male is much less aggressive with females during courtship. Started with a group of 5, lost one, the aggressive male almost killed two more, so the 55 is down to only three angels now, but reasonably peaceful. Concur regarding the gouramis. Had a small one and they do not get along with angelfish.

I like angelfish and highly recommend them, but be prepared for some cichlid strife - depending on the fishes personalities!

Your tank layout is very nice, an interesting mix of elements without being overwhelming. Very attractive scape.

Thank you DKRST. I really would like to have some angels, so I'll think I'll give them a try. The gouramis were my starter fish so I don't mind so much giving them back. I would like to get a few more fish for the tank but haven't quiet figured out what I want yet. Looking for suggestions.
