Question will these two get along? any ideas of what others to put with em?

im looking to get a 20 gallon tank and ive become very fond of angel fish and corydoras.

ive been looking into these types and they seem like they'd be fine. but if anyone has any insight, please fill me in.

im a beginner so any info would help tons.

also, if you know of any other fish that would go well with these, let me know

Get along, yes.

Can be housed in a 20G, no. Angles get too large for anything close to a 20G IMO. Cories are fine in a 20G, though.

Well, if you get a bigger tank, Angels are great with all peaceful fish, but look amazing swimming with a school of tetras. It might be just me, but I think they are the perfect combo.

A 20 gallon would be good if you got young angel, and then have time to upgrade to a bigger tank when they got older, and bigger, as they do get quite large, but like "Cody" says, they definitly need a larger tank then a 20 gallon. =)

I have a 50gal tank with 4 angelfish, 9 corydoras, 6 pristella & rummynose tetras, 5 otocinclus, 3 marbled hatchetfish and one bristlenose pleco. It's a very peaceful tank right now although it won't be once the angelfish pair up and begin to spawn....
