fish for my new tank

Joe, you need to cycle the tank first although you may make a plan in advance on what you like.
Angelfish do come in several variants. It does not matter what strain you choose. Same applies to dwarf gouramis.
As for hatchets, pls remember to buy cover glasses as hatchets will jump.
As for pencilfish, they should be ok with angelfish but ensure the pencils will fully mature by the time the angelfish reach adult stage to prevent predation.
I wouldn't put panda cories for awhile(even after cycling has finished). They are delicate cories and you'll have to wait unless tank reaches by 4-6 months.

also please note that those pics where taken with a very good camera so your angels wont look like that ;)

but other than that angels need 10 gal of water EACH and hatchets you will never see if you have a hood that covers the top part of the tank, and your gourmai seams to be tricky to keep.

There just trying to give you all of the help needed. If your not new than you should already have what you are positive that is going in the tank already done. Good luck :D

i was just asking if there was more fish to put in there that would go :wink:

the water goes over a filter sock. Angels need ALOT of room and they will fight for it, so I recommend either a few aggressive/medium size fish or small nice fish. and a PLECO :)
