Hello i have just bought a 55 gallon aquarium that is currently cycling at the moment. With a bigger fish tank than the ones that i have had in the past i am looking at possible stocking it with angelfish. I have read into a lot of their behavior and standard listed requirements, but i still have a few questions from those with experience.
The question is how many angelfish can i place comfortably within my tank? I am wanting to build around having angelfish so i do not care if its not a community tank. my concern is with them making pairs and the tank is more for show. Also any tips that are helpful is much appreciated as well.
Oh! and here is a pic of the tank.
What a pretty tank! I am not sure of the answer to your question, though. I have one angel in my 29g. I have read that odd numbers of angels are better, not sure if that is accurate or not.
So is that a 55 tall? Not the standard 4 ft long. Get 6 juvenile angels and let them pair off. You'll probably only be able to keep one pair in there. Paired angels are very territorial. Make sure you have a plan for rehoming the others.
ya its a 55 tall.
what are the exact dementions of this tank?
30 inch long X 18 inches width X 25 inch tall
I started with 5 juv, ended up with 2 in one tank and 3 in another(55Gl and 65GL)
When they pair up all hell breaks lose
I do know of cases where 7 are kept in a 100gl, no problem, but were raised together in a planted tank
That tank is actually a 56G I have the same exact tank. With the same exact tree root lol. Great minds think alike lol. I would say the same about 6 angels and then when you get a mated pair you will have to be careful with aggresion. I have one angel and community fish.
yea so far what i am thinking of stocking is 6 corys eventually one bristle nose and 3 to 4 angelfish. do you think that looks good and if so is four or three better?
