Angel Fish question
I was wondering how many I could put in my 56 gallon. I wanted just two but not sure if thats ok?
Looking at your signature, I'm guessing the tank is relatively tall. This is good for angelfish, but means that you can put in less fish (less surface area). I would go for a maximum of three, and keep very little other fish.
The demensions are 25H 30L and 18W
I would buy 5 or 6 juveniles and then let them pair off. Keep your favorite pair and return the rest. Two in a 56g column is a good number. You could probably get away with a nice school of rummynose tetras (six or eight), a school of 6 or so cories and possibly a dwarf cichlid of some kind for the lower levels.
If this is the tank with your discus ,I would be very careful to quarantine any fish I added to this tank for a minimum of three weeks so as not to introduce possible parasite or disease. I might also consider that Angel fish are somewhat more aggressive at feeding time and Some Discus don't compete very well for food in community setting. IME.
