um lets see i have been keeping fish in one way or another for abut 15 years now.

I am a science teacher in minnesota.

my "at home tank" is 28 gallons. it contains 3 angel fish (1 gold and 2 "wild" type) 1 tiger barb, 5 sepia tetra i blue graumi, i pleco, i ram cichlid, and 2 cory.

at school i have two tanks both 10 gallons, 1 with a adult, female albino african clawed frog and the other with a mated pair of convicts and there 4 day old fry.
this guy sure does not know much about fish... a pair of convicts in a 10 gallon 8O

i am not sure that a 28 is big enough for 3 angels and a Gourami

tiger barbs will do better in a group of at least 6 and may nip the fins of your other fish, keep an eye on the sepia tetra for the same reason. in fact i would try to trade the lone tiger barb into the lfs and get a couple more sepia tetra, IMO.

do you know what type of pleco you have, if it is a common pleco i will easily outgrow that tank.

my advice to the OP is this... move the pair of convicts to a larger tank, maybe a 25 to 30 gallon.

and perhaps trade in one of the angels, especialy if a pair forms the odd fish out could be killed.

HTH

you are off to a good start and will do just fine i see you having over 1800 posts someday 8)

ROFL!!!!! I completely agree with JD's advice. Researching your livestock prior to purchase will save in the looong run. I know, why not set up a planted tank?

I was about to lock the thread since it's almost 2 years old until I saw the OPs name.
