No angels in a 29 gallons. Angels get far too big for that.:)

Not unless they did fit the angels' mouths where deep-bodied ones are the exception. Altum angels however are another matter.

I had a Koi angel eat all my tetras. And I thought I already said that angels wasn't a good idea. Why say what I already said again. lol. Oh well I guess you must have a reason otherwise you wouldn't do it.

Age, you were applying tetras in general so I make it clear that scalare angels can eat only tetras that do fit in their mouths. Neons, cardinals and glowlights are a few that are likely eaten. Deep-bodied ones like the red phantoms are not easily eaten by scalare angels. Altum angelfish on the other hand will.
