If your set on angels. I believe you could do one pair of standard fin koi angels and no other stock. they would max the tank out IMO. If you do go that route. I would strongly suggest planning a larger tank within a year

Is that a freshwater angel? Koi? Are you wanting to know saltwater? If saltwater there are no angel fish suitable for that size I am afraid. Must be time for an upgrade

You may keep 1 dwarf angel fish that is 3 inch full grown. Flame Angel is most popular.

I would not keep dwarf angels in that small of a tank. 75g for most. Flameback and Cherub pygmy angels are okay for 55g. If you absolutely must have one, I'd go with one of those.

Putting fish in smaller than recommended tanks very often leads to problems. They are stressed, which lowers their immune system, which opens them up to diseases. It can also create territorial issues that lead to aggression. When you look at all of the daily "my fish has something wrong" posts in the Sick Fish section of this site, almost every one is a fish that's in a " too small" tank.

I answered your other post..... http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...sh-251064.html


BTW... I know you're seeking info, but double posting is typically against forum etiquette.

Thanks guys, much appreciated. Unfortunately a bigger tank is not an option cause my tank just new, know its on the small side but its great beginners tank, upgrade in a few years if all goes well.

Sorry for double posting btw.

If you put in fish for that size, things should be fine. Angels get really big, Dwarf Angels are relatively small, but need space to swim (much like Tangs) and the smallest like Flamebacks and Cherubs still need a little more. Smaller tanks wont kill them, but it often causes problems.

Use places like liveaquaria.com for tank size recommendations, compatibility, etc. stay within those guidelines and you will save yourself from a lot of trouble.
