I am a complete newbie to fish. I am planning to setup a 30 gallon planted aquarium. I want to get Mollies, Guppies, Tetras and Angel Fish to create the community fish tank
I would appreciate it if experts on this forum could answer a few question and help me with my fish selection.
1)I have heard that the Angelfish would eat any fish that fits in its mouth , then why are they listed as compatible to tetras on the fish compatibility chart. If they will eat my other fish ..I dont want to get the Angel Fish eventhough I have my heart set on it.
2) How many of each ( mollies, guppies, tetras and angel fish) do you recommend I can keep in a 30 gl tank. I was thinking of 4 mollies, 2 guppies, 6 tetras and 2 angel fish.
3) I have read that mollies and guppies reproduce profusely and I wouldnt know what to do with the extra fish. I dont have friends that are into fish and I dont want other carnivorous fish to eat these new babies. So I was thinking of just getting 4 male mollies and 2 male guppies. Will they be okay without a female partner or will it cause them to be aggresive towards each other.
4)If you think these are not good matchings please reccommend fish species that will go well togeather. I want colorful peaceful community fish.
Thanks for all the help in advance.
