Angels with danios

Have a feeling I already know the consensus. I was thinking about what I want in my sons 55gal. He loves his danios so the are a must. I am looking the add some tetras and there is a BN in there. Not sure what else as of yet, trying to keep an open mind.

Do you think the angels will be harassed too much by the danios?

Hhhhmmmm ok. What do you recommend. Do you think it's not likely/possible/probable that they can be happy together.

Well, I am no expert on this subject, but I have a thread about stocking a 36 gallon tank and I was advised to have glofish with angels... glofish are danios, so I assume that it will work.

I have giant danios in my 150 with two angels. They pretty much seem to ignore each other.

there may be some ocassional minor nipping from both sides. But nothing relentless and too over harassing.
So it should be ok.
I have kept them together in the past.

Just make sure there are at least 6 danios and the angels have lots of space to lessen the aggression! Hence don't overstock your tank.

Thats quite different, giant danios get big, so there is no way an angel could eat them. As for regular danios, a larger school would be good, and they have to get to around 2 inches. Angels dont like alot of activity, so if you added these danios, you couldnt add too much more the the middle section of the tank.

Sweet! I really wanted them ever since we set the tank up an realize the wall paper in my sons room shows clouds behind the tank! There is also a huge castle in the tank so I think they would look awesome floating around it.

What is the stocking plan that you are considering so far?

I vote no for the regular zebra/leopard danios because either they will tick off the angel with their activity and the angel will eat them because he is annoyed with them (which is what happened to mine) or the danios are haters and nip at your angel.

I think giant danios would be better too... were you planning on getting a pair of angels, or two of the same gender?

I had not made up my mind about the angels yet so I have not even thought that far ahead. I guess a pair, but I don't know anything about breeding. What is best? m/m or f/f if not breeding?

Angels arent going to eat zebra danios, where do you guys find this stuff? The danios might get nippy but keep a decent school to.help quell aggression.

Have to agree with bruinsbro here, I know my angels don't like a lot of activity in their "zone", they tend to get pushy when bothered. But what about some rainbows for your son's room? They get pretty good sized and would do well in that tank and they also have peronality and come in great colors. Much success whatever you choose

Just personal experience. Tried keeping zebra danios with an angel in a thirty gallon...no danios in three days.

Considering the size of adult zebra danios, if they don't work, then most community schoolers wouldn't work either. I've kept them together on a few occasions without any particular issue.

I've not had a problem keeping them with adult neons either, but I could see juveniles of any species getting eaten.


I have kept a ton of angelfish and I couldn't imagine not being able to stock 2" schoolers with them, so I guess that's where our opinions differ.

Maybe that's where my problem was perhaps, these guys were still only a few months old with a full grown angel

Hahaha! Thanks guys. So what I'm hearing is they could work just make sure there are no juveniles in the tank........ Or try to pick up some non evil angels!

I have two large angels and a school of five giant danios in a 55 gallon and they ignore each other. I've also had a lone cherry barb in there for about a year and a half without a single problem. I just recently purchased 5 more of them and everyone seems to be getting along or minding their own buisness. I actually really love my danios, they are the life of the tank and provide a lot of flashy movement.
