will these get along? plz help
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

Welcome to the forum Daynahj. Have you set up and cycled your tank yet? If so what are your water parameters? The actual parameters will help us figure out what fish are best for your water. Not all water is alike.
Angels will work just fine with cories if the tank is cycled and parameters are suitable.

Angels and corys will get along fine, but an adult angel will outgrow your 20 gallon tank. Angels also need quite tall tanks because of their shape.

Yes, angels and corys will get along fine but like it has been said angels are very tall fish and need correspondingly deep tanks to live in. They'll outgrow a 20 gallon tank for sure. I'd say keep the cories and wait for a larger tank for angels.

Did you see anything else at the store that caught your eye? There's not much that won't get along fine with corys.
