75 gallon aquarium stocking

Hello everyone! I bought a 75 gallon aquarium a few weeks ago and itís got live plants. I want to add angels but I donít know how many and what to add with them...maybe some Corys or a Bristlenose Pleco? Tetras? I could REALLY use some help...

Rough estimate.......6 Angels, 6 to 8 Cory cats, and 6 to 8 black skirt tetra (or any full bodied tetra).

Or.....6 Angels, 2 bristlenose plecos (any of the 5-6 inch pleco types), and 6 to 8 black skirt tetra (full bodied tetra).

I say full bodied....bigger round tetra because they will survive with Angels. The slimmer...pencil shaped tetras can be eaten by a full grown Angel.

There's obviously several combinations of different fish but there's some 2 cents on what you listed.

I thought black skirt tetras nipped at the fins of Angels?

Possibly. I've never experienced that and I keep them with my Angel. Maybe depends on the particar fish??

You don't have to go with black skirt. You could find another full bodied tetra you like and go with that.

Then I guess that might work, what if I added 2x Bolivian rams? Or something like that?

Okay, I researched some more... what about some lemon tetras? And a Dwarf Gourami would the Gourami work or would that be too much?

Bolivian Rams would work. You could keep more than two.

I'd go with Pearl or honey Gourami. Stay away from dwarf....they inherently have problems

How many Bolivian rams could I put into it? Iím not sure if I want to do 6x angels. But how many honey or pearls could I incorporate?

Are you wanting to add these fish with your Angels?

You don't have to put 6. I was just giving you a max number with the other fish you listed.

I've never kept Bolivian Rams but are definitely on my list. I'd say you could keep 8 max in your tank. Not that they get real big but they need space to establish territory. This number changes if you are mixing with Angels. The thing about Rams is they pair up. So getting them to pair and not gang up on the odd man out is the trick. A member named Coral Bandit is knowledgeable in keeping Rams. You might send him a PM.

I'd say 6 pearl or honey Gourami. Again, one male per female or one male for two females.

Sparkling Gourami's can be kept in larger groups. They are smaller and more peaceful. Just an idea.

Okay so here’s my list so far
4x angels
5x Bolivian rams
12x lemon tetras
4x pearl or honey Gouramis
7x Corys
Would that all be overcrowding the aquarium or not?
