As the topic suggests, I moved my mbuna herd to a 75 and have a 36g bow front and am curious if it would be suitable size for 2 German blue rams and an angelfish and would these fish even be suited to each other? Thank tou

The 36 is well cycled and I have lowered the ph and I know gbrs need 82-84 temp

I wouldn't combine the two types in a single tank. The angels will get significantly larger than the rams, and both species are aggressive to tank mates when brooding. You might get away with it for awhile, but the size difference is eventually going to make it difficult to keep both thriving in the same tank.

You could do bolivian rams with angels if your set on rams and angels. Bolivians get larger than GBRs, are not as sensitive, and hold their own better against angels.

I might skip the angels then. I know a highly reputable breeder of gbrs and I love the specimens he has. Thanks for the replies
