Angels with Tinfoil and Tiger Barbs?

I have an established tank with tinfoil barbs and tiger barbs in it. Would angel fish be okay to put in there? I don't know how they would get along. the tinfoils and tigers are full size, the angels are still kinda young. The angels are okay where they are for now, but I need to find a place for them when they get bigger.

What size tank is this? Tinfoil barbs get big man....

I wouldn't put an angel with tigers, they are known to be fin nippers.

Thats what I was thinking. I am kinda new to angels. I was hoping they were feisty enough to hold their own, but maybe not. Maybe I will just get another tank when the angels are big enough to need to move. I guess 8 tanks is just not enough.

How big are your tinfoils? Curiosity has peaked

I would say the biggest one is about 8 inches now. The others maybe 6, they all started out the same size, but that one has been bigger than the others for a while now.

I love them, they are beautiful. I can't wait till they get full grown. My husband said he is going to go fishing in my tank.

Haha. They'll grow up to a foot! Mine is around 6-7" if I had to guess. I debated rehoming him several times but I feel like he has a mental handicap, in the sense that he thinks he's a cichlid. Pretty comical usually

I have six of them and they are really never alone. They school everywhere together. I love the way they glisten in the light. And their tails are getting more red as they grow. And they are voracious eaters.

I would not put angels in with those barbs. Just asking for trouble.
