Compatibility question?

I am moving my 30 gallon into a 55 gallon soon.... I have a couple questions about compatibility.... I have a Pygmy Dwarf angel and wanted to add a Flameangel...... I also have a skunk shrimp and wanted to add a fire shrimp....... Are these additions going to be ok in the 55?

Compatibility question?

Not 100% sure, but I believe it is not always advisable to mix Dwarf Angels in the same tank.

I have kept Cleaners with Fire Shrimp in the past, and everything appeared to be alright. I would check with other people though, and make sure they have had the same experience.

Happy New Year!

In a big enough tank with lots of escape routes, you can mix dwarf angels. They will spar with each other, but if there is sufficient room, nobody will get hurt. In a smaller system like your 55, I would be cautious.
