And then no one agrees that it's a great idea. In this case, I think we agree it is an imperfect but possible plan, at least in the short term.
Anyway, you made me chuckle-- because we have all done that! "Are you sure I can't keep a tigershark in a twenty gallon tank?? OMG, I already bought the shark!!!"
There's another thread or two in which the poster complains of angels biting her lemon tetras. Other forum contributors including Byron suggested that this was indeed a possibility. I have never had Angels injure other fish, except a small school of white clouds that got unceremoniously eaten. When I kept Angels with a small school of Bleeding Hearts I had the opposite experience in which the Tetras relentlessly nipped at the filaments of the Angels' dorsal and anal fins. And in another tank years ago, that same combination worked out fine. So there you go. I was one for two. How they will interact with lemon tetras is anyone's guess.
Yes, I think the corys will be largely ignored by the angels. I would be surprised if any or many fish pester or eat cory cats. I would imagine it would be like trying to eat rose thorns. I second the idea of keeping a larger group of them and remember to feed feed feed them!
Poor guy! It's been a rough day for you on the threads, huh?
i was just wondering on tankmates for the 2. i really am stumped on if theyre a pair or not. they dont guard a section or anything but they do swim together sometimes. maybe its bc they were raised together and shipped in the same bag. what do you mean rough day with threads? this is the only thread i posted today.
