My two setups....

Talked to some people, and I've got a few "layouts" of what fish to put in. Please vote, or make other recommendations! Thanks

SETUP #1
  • 1 - Angel Fish
    6to8 - glo-light tetras (or similiar school)
    1 - Blue Ram
    1 - Bolivian Ram
    1 - Bottomfeeder/Pleco

SETUP #2
  • 1 - Angel Fish
    6 - Corries
    6 - Glolight tetras
    1 - Blue Ram

I do not have the tank yet, but I will be getting a 25 gallon, with at least 20" high to give the Angel plenty of room. I'm not sure of pH levels yet, but I've been told our water is average around 6-7.

Thanks

i like the second list better, if you decide to get the pleco make sure to get a small pleco such as a Clown or BD Pleco, they are nice

Glo-light tetras would be snacks when the angels got bigger, and rams are better as a pair (of the same type). Most bottom feeders seem to do best in small groups, too.

I'd skip the angels though, a 25 gallon really doesn't seem big enough for them.

I would skip the angel also. It could be a fluke but I had one by itself and it got really mean. If you do go with the angel, I would not put the glow lights in with it. If they don't get eaten, they would still probably get picked on. I would go with a couple of rams, a plec (one that stays small), and the glo-lights.

Thanks for the opinions all.

I was looking to get the angel as a centerpeice. I dont want any of my fish to become food.

So if I scratch the angel, get an additional ram (possiblty either 2 blue or 2 bolivian, I like them both), with the glo-lights, what would a good centerpeice be?
