Ahh,yes ,the million dollar question..Can i keep two large angels together..
Well,,easy answer is Yes...,but the range of difficulty differs between famlies..In your case they are different families ,but the queen can be a mean SOB..Add both as juvis and the chances are a lot better than doing it at different times...
I personally would try it ..Your tank is large,not huge ,,some say don't attempt it in anything under 300 8 footers ,but no risk no reward ..Worst case,, you have to yank one out and get store credit..

Thanks for the info - may I ask: what size is the tank? How large are the 2 angels and how long have you had them? What order did you add them in? Thanks again

Adding Angles

I only have a 90g. I know, small for the angels. My tank has been up and running for about 6 months now. I have great bio filtration a good skimmer and excellent water quality. I understand that both angles are prone to fungal infections. But all fish have been healthy. I have a 40g quarantine tank that I use to aclimate all fish I add to the tank.

These angles were one of the last fish I added.

I hop this helps.

I have to jump in here and say this is a recipe for disaster ..If the juvi queen in your avatar is yours its just a baby and will get 3x that size(along with the emp) ..This is only going to cause some crazy aggression issues ..6 months is not long at all,,i hate coming off as a jerk,but this is not a good situation for 2 large(or dwarfs) angels to be in ..Just want to help you avoid disaster in a year
