How many angels

How many juvenile angelfish do you think would fit comfortably in a 95 gallon? Considering, of course, you plan on all of them reaching maturity. Oh and you have a 40g qt set up as well in case of pairing, etc.

I would say about 8 fish but I don't know for sure I'm not an export on angels.

I would probably stick with 2 pairs. Any more than that and you're begging for some aggression.

Please dont. There's no such thing. It's a myth that uneducated individuals like many at chain stores use. It *may* work for danios, and some small tetras, but that's about it. You're not taking in to consideration aggression, maximum adult size, footprint of the tank, bio-load of the fish, and numerous other factors.

I was thinking like six, along with a small school of coydras, and tetras. So maybe just four, but should I still consider the others?
