Groups of Angels need big big tanks...A single one in a 180 litre will be fine....Gouramis have similar requirements....Its all about territory....Once they have enough room there will be no problems......

Just watch that the Angel and Gourami dont beat the crap out of each other....Buying small specimens and growing them out is a good trick...Dont go for monsters or else you are asking for trouble....

Bigger Angels and Gouramis will scoff small fish like juvenile neons and cardinals....Again grow them all up together and you will be fine....

Bristlenose plecos and Corries dont cause any trouble and rarely get picked on by others...

My opinion! Go for it! In fact you could do alot more Neons and Cardinals.....Schooling fish like that look awesome in bigger numbers and behave more naturally...

Maybe even do more Corries...the same applies to them....They are very social fish (but only with similar species) Dont mix and match Corrie species, keep all the same kind...


I love to hate Water Changes! :P

So if I will get 1 pleco, 6 cory, 12 neon, 12  cardinals, 1 angelfish and 6 platy will be ok?
Im nit that crazy about gouramis just wanted something to stay top so its spread evenly.. Maybe you can advise me some top fish or some as preety as angelfish ( was thinking about guppy or betta but everyone say they to aggressive)
