What kind of fish good for 55 gallon?
Hi! i currently have 6 red bellied piranahs in my 55 gallon tank, but im giving them away to a friend of mine with a 120 gallon. I cannot keep the water clean with all these in a 55 gallon, and i like more colorful type fish.
So once these are gone, i have a 55 gallon that i am open on idea's about. Im thinking about maybe getting 4 angels in there. What kind of fish do you think could be good in a 55 gallon? I like more than one, so fish like oscars arent really on the list. I have a heater for the tank by the way, and 2 powerful filters that are pumping about 90 gallons. Any suggestions would be great!

I would say harlequin rasboras and some tetras will fit nicely. Avoid neons if you really wish to keep angels.

I'd go with a variety of community fish if possible.

If I had another 55, I'd think about setting it up for skunk loaches. However, since you want colorful, that's probably not for you. Congo Tetras would go nicely with Angelfish.
