Yes. What size is the tank? Any fish in it? If so, what are they?

well i heard hatchet can live iwth angels.. i have a 20 gallon with two angels a pearl gourami a gold gourami and a kribensis.. is it okay to put them togather?
i wanted to try puffers but i heard they eat snails :S

dwarf puffers would harrass every fish u named to the points of death. they can only be housed with less then a hand full of fish. Mostly people use Small Loaches and Oto's for tank mates if they even put tank mates in there.

If u put puffer's in there ur fish would be dead within a month is my guess... also the angel fish should be in a tank 18 inches tall 2 ft long and a foot wide minimum.
