Ok lol. That's my bad bc I copy and posted this from my other thread..... So I was saying that my cosin have a 45 dome(pics are on my profile) and did a fish cycle with two gouramie and 5 sarpea tetras....(it was his choice to do a fish cycle I prefer not but he claims that he didn't have the time...but I help but some bacteria in with media from one of my tanks.)now I have a ten gallon with an angel and about 5 other small fish not sure of the names... I know one of them is a neon tetra.... So I decided that I should put all my fish in his 45 with only one gouramie..(pearl gouramie) and I would return the gold gouramie along with the 5 sarpea tetras bc they might conflict with my angel.... I have to keep the angel.... So he has to go in the 45 tank... The thing that I'm not sure about is who I should keep with him... Give me some advice please......

Ok I think I understand. So you are putting the angel in the 45 gal. Getting rid of the gold gourami, that's probably a good idea, they are generally pretty aggresive and I wouldn't want him with your angel. The serpae tetra may be ok...they do have a tendency to get nippy so keep a close eye. Adding 1 or 2 more serpae may help them be less nippy because they are schooling fish. Neons are great peaceful fish, but they too are schooling fish (all tetras all really) so I would get your neon some buddies, preferably 6 more. The pearl gourami I'm not sure on. It's possible it won't get along with the angel so just be prepared for that. I don't know what any of the other fish are, but if you need help with ID's, try to post some pics and I'll try to help

If you get a larger school of tetras they won't nip at your angelfish. I have ten barbs in my 55g (which tend to be more nippy/aggressive than tetras) and they leave my angel and other fish alone. I think a gourami could work with an angel, but didn't you say earlier you had two gouramis in the same tank with your angel? That is not a good plan.. Gouramis can be aggressive with each other, or they may take it out on your angel. Pictures would help a lot.

It is a tetra. I can't see him clearly, but it looks like the Columbian red finned tetra.
