I have a pearl gourami and a school of odessa barbs with my angels. They typically stay in the top region of the tank, although sometimes the barbs are all over the place. It's a very peaceful tank.

And a large number of corys can be a real pain to keep alive with angels bc the angels will often steal their shrimp pellets and algae wafers >

That's interesting my Angels don't touch my shrimp pellets or algae wafers, they've tried the algae wafers and spit it right back out, lol!

Mine won't eat any kind of veggies either I've given them shelled peas many times and they spit those out too! I figured they need some greenery in their diet! They will only eat flakes and the frozen food with the shrimp and bloodworms!

Haha that's funny! I can see that happening with mine in the future. ATM he's only about a quarter size but he intently watches the cories eating... even while he's got a blood worm in his mouth already! He also loves those Hikari algae wafers... at least he waited until the cories had their fill before he munched on it.

Do glass cats stay near the top of the tank without floating plants? Most of the photos I've been able to google looks like they're at the bottom of the tank.

Do you have floating plants in your tank? My tank appears to be opposite of what a pearl gourami would like (according to liveaquaria.com at least lol).

Yes, glass cats have a tendency to stay at the lower part of the tank.

No, gouramis don't need floating plants at all. I've kept mine without.
