I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I think about it every night and day!

i would think that with 4 full grown angelfish and the rest of those fish in there you would be pushing your limit of fish. if you were going to start with 4 angels and then only keep 2 (the ones that pair off) i think it would be better. i would also go with only 1 gourami. how long is your tank? you have a lot of bottom dwelling fish especially if you get the catfish. make sure there is enough room down thre for all of them.

the dimensions of the tank are l-48 w-20 h-16.5. So any ideas of if that would be good. this is my new list again:
4 angelfish
2 gouramis
5 black skirt tetras
5 glassfish
5 kuhli loaches
3 catfish (don't know what kind)
2 Farowellas

This be fine?

55 Gallon Aquarium
1 Black Kuhli Loach
3 Black Skirt Tetras
4 Angelfish (3 Marble, 1 Gold)
1 Glass Fish
2 Blue Sunset Gourami
3 African Dwarf Frog

Are these still dwarf gouramis? Two males will never work. What catfish are you thinking? Corydoras and otos are not a problem. Anything growing to 6 inches and above is not recommended.

Angels really need a height of 18" absolute minimum so I would perhaps reconsider them.

Again, stick with only one gourami.

for catfish i would go with cories. you should have enough bottom space for all that. like the others said only get 1 gourami. please listen to us when we say this. we are not trying to keep you from getting a fish that you want, we are trying to save you from frustration and sadness when things dont work out. its whats best for the fish. the angelfish should have a slightly higher tank so consider that as well.

i did some quick research and the gouramis are dwarf and their also know and powder blue dwarf gouramis. they will be fine in a planted tank (it will be) and good enough hiding places. i'll do some research on angelfish in a bit.
