Fish with angelfish?
I am getting angelfish and are red wag platies and mollies compatible with the angelfish?
Fish with angelfish?
I have a question. I know angelfish do best in single species aquariums but I really want some other fish with them. So far it looks like I m going to get cory catfish but do you know any other types?
What's the aquarium size? I have 4 in a 75 community and working very well but I'm sure at least a few people would somewhat advise against it.

Here is a list of schooling fish I think would do well with Angelfish.
Black Neon Tetra
It is a 60 gallon
Angelfish with others
I need to find fish that work with angelfish. I dont want them to fin nip and they can't be too small that the angels will eat them. Anyone have suggestions?
Edit: I moved this post into this thread since the topic is the same. Please keep a issue, and all it's ramifications, in one thread. It makes it much easier for other members to respond when they see all that has been suggested, and you will get a better response. Byron.
cichlids- Bolivan rams, flag acaras, and Apistrograma cacatuides, festiums although in a 60 the festiums might be cramped they get bigger then angels.
Tetras- Rummy nose, black, bleeding heart, in addiction to the ones above stated.
Catfish, striped rapshel, corys warm water, sliver dollars,. if you got fake plants. plecos of various types.
Most of what has been suggested will work, with some reservations.
Generally speaking, angelfish will consider the linear small fish as food, especially as the angels mature. Linear means fish that are pencil or torpedo shaped, like neons. Rounder or disk-shaped tetra like those in the Rosy clade of Hyphessobrycon (more in shape like the angels, only smaller and without extended fins) tend to be good tankmates. One does have to be careful of nippers, however, as we noted in another thread about the Bleeding Hearts.
Yes, but with reservations. First, livebearers need basic harder water than angelfish prefer. However, the tank-raised angels you buy in stores are more adaptable so long as extremes are avoided.
Molly absolutely must have harder water, so depending what you water parameters are, mollies might not be wise.
This thread is very close to the other two, dealing with fish in with angelfish. It is better to keep this topic together in one thread, so I'm moving this one over too. B.
I would say research some more on the fish profiles provided here and if your pet store had a knowledgeable owner or worker, talk to them as well. And make sure you have time to watch your fish interacting and that your fish store will take them back if for some reason they don't work out.
If this is a new tank though you need to set it up and cycle it first. We didn't get our anglefish right away, we started with the tetras to help cycle it. Then we added our catfish and only a month or longer later we started adding anglefish to our tank. I think it makes a difference too in territory issues with the fish which ones you add first, so you may want to think about that too. We are learning a lot as we go, I'm just sharing my experience, I'm no expert my any means. At least you are trying to work out as much as you can before you get started.
