Hi everyone out there I have a question can I put a really tiny angel fish and a Betta fish together? My setup is a 40 gallon tank with a blue and gold gorami, an angel fish, and a tiger barb.
Thanks for the help
Jackieboy

I dont know about angels and Bettas but I have been told Bettas and gouramis together is not a good idea.

Probably a bad idea I try and keep Bettas away from anything last time I tried the betta killed everything in my tank and it didn't take long...

Hi and welcome!
Did you cycle your tank??? how?
Unfortunately the tiger barb is going to have to be returned/rehomed. They need schools of their own kind and shouldn't be kept with fish they can nip the fins of (Angels).

Thank you mumma I saw your reply and looked at the angel then realized your right and his tail is shorter. Are there any fish that would coexist with barbs?
Thanks

Other barbs (cherry barbs, gold barbs, odessa barbs), other fast and aggressive schoolers (buenos aires tetras, serpae tetras, black skirt tetras), aggressive fish that will put them in their place (convicts, firemouths). That's all I would suggest. Good luck

Here is an article on tank and fish care. It also includes important information on cycling. If you just added your fish to the tank you WILL be cycling. It will quickly become a toxic environment for them.
