Maybe. numbers wise I think it looks good. Not sure if the angelfish will put up with the hyper danio antics but maybe as long as the tank really is a "plant fest"

the ones i have in my other 55 seems to do ok with my beunos aires tetras but i guess it depends on the angelfish. i just really like angels and ive never had danios. i like their color.

Well 1) do you already have your plant fest partying up in the 55?
2) any other fish or will these be the first to add?
3) did you fishless cycle the tank or plan to add seeded media?

Call me crazy but if you answer those questions with the yes, yes(as in no other fish yet), and yes.... Then I would just go ahead and add all eight. I've added 6 fish at one to a pretty new tank and it didn't crash my cycle(instant cycled with seeded media). No spikes in anything. But you could play it safe and do 4 at a time. Or like super cautious level safe and do 2 at a time.. But as I think you know by now I'm not exactly cautious lol

haha yeah. i have alot of plants in there now.i also used seed media as well. tank has been fishless for about 2 weeks now. so you think it would be alright to add all 8 then? i need to do a water change should i do that first before adding the fish? or wait?

Go ahead and do a water change .. then test every day or two after adding them to make sure you didn't throw anything out of wack. If everything is good after a week still then you're in the clear. I think you should be fine. It's not like you're dumping the whole stocking list in tonight.... just a small fraction.
(Do you have pie in case I'm wrong? )

Ohhh..pretty.. Whats the red plant on the far left?

Hahahaha!! I kinda did that with my last batch of cordoras. I meant to get 2-3 more but just got all that was in their tank ..umm.. so like 7 hehe. I rationalized that corys are social so my 5 now being 12 is even better for them.

Aww ... I love it when fish enjoy to flow. Always so funny to watch. Glad it's working out for you!
