As for angelfish, there are soooo many kinds. Hard to find one that will suit your fancy. I personally like koi angelfish, and you can see a picture of one I used to have in my gallery.

As for a schooling fish, I love Harlequin rasboras. They would look awesome in that tank.

I like the kois as well. I like rummy noses or red eyed tetras. Harlequins are pretty fish as well.

Tiger barbs and angels are not a good mix. The barbs will pick on the angels fins. Beside you need 8 for the barbs to really be themselves and they do get 3" long, so I doubt you would have room for the angels.

I have a barb tank, and they're great. Angels would not be a good idea. My shark sometimes chases the barbs around, but I think they all get along pretty well.

Perhaps a bristlenose pleco or a gold nugget? I dont know that gold nuggets are the best of algae eaters, but they look cool. Bristlenoses from what I understand are some of the best at eating algae?

u may have to many fish if u add the angels. why not jus drop the angel idea and stick with what u have... it is a very nice list without the angels!

as for a pleco go with the bristlenose
