I heard that rainbowfish were very peaceful fish. However, I have 3 boesemani rainbowfish in a 44g tank with 2 angelfish at the moment. Thats ALL There is, except for a smallish female platy, and now 2 bristlenose plecos. I am having issues though! My rainbowfish have completely frayed fins. I don't know what is causing it. Could the rainbowfish be picking at them? I sometimes forget meals. The fish tank is out in semi-detached office room and I don't really go into that room other than to feed my fish, and sometimes I forget to feed them, never for extended periods. Anyways, I got 10 philipian blue/pinoy angelfish in my 50g tank right now and I want to move some into my 44g to make space in my 55g for them to grow up properly. I don't want those to get destroyed though. I also eventually would love to have 5 angelfish, 3 boesemani (could it also be the limited group size causing their aggression if thats the reason)?, and 1 bristlenose pleco in my 50g, however, idk if the boesemani will be a problem. The boesemani are also crazy feeders - could they stress my angels? :( I really like both fish but I want them in the same tank (the outside tank is not one I see often enough to consider it for a separate species).
The angelfish have looked like this for practically weeks and idk what to do:
Thanks for any help! :/
