About 16 gallons. 3 or 4 angelfish, 6- 10 neon or cardinals, 6-10 small tetras, and 1 pleco that doesn't get over 4 inches long. What I keep running into is that people who have them say that close up, it makes the fish look distorted. Don't know as I don't not have a biorb and have never got to see one in person. Just go with a biotype setup. The angels might get to big for the tank. I'm not sure how tall and wide that tank is. I am hoping to be able to get the 105 liter this fall.

The angels are definitely not acceptable for that tank. 1 school of tetras/ rasboras and a smaller gourami would be good.
