i saw in your other post that your tank is actually 275 litters. Is that true? Anyone know what the gal conversion would be? If this is the case, you are currently way overstocked. What are your water parameters? Most of the fish you mentioned need very large aquariums to be hapy and healthy. I am by no means trying to be mean, but you may be well on the way to disastor.

275 liters = 72.669 gal. I'm afraid this tank is already overstocked.
Good luck.

I'd say you can put negative eight fish.

Way over-stocked indeed for a 72 gal. tank. Can you give us more info on your tank? What are the water parameters, lighting, filtration, substrate, live rock, how long has it been running? Thanks! Lando

Yes, please find the Angels a good home. Even with a large tank they will/can fight . My angel has grown more than 2" since Dec. I wouldn't even consider another.
They may seem small now, but they will (within a year) outgrow the tank. Road to disaster IMO. (even if it was a 275 gallon)
