25g Tank With Angels?

    hello guys.
    I am about to set up a 25g tank and have a few questions. The tank is to house 2 kribs(not currently paired up, still Juveniles) and 2 angels with a bristle nose plec with some dither fish...
    tank measurement is 800x400x350.
    Would this work with the correct tank setup? Ive heard a large plant/bog wood to split the tank helps sustain territory. (The angels are for the mrs...)
    Thanks in advance.

    Its a 29g tank guys... sorry! Set up wise im thinking few caves and 2 large rocks leaning one ontop of the other for the krib side. And for the angels ive two tall pieces of rosewood that ive leant against eachother which make a really nice high feature, shall heavily plant around that with broad leaf plants, for the 'territory boundary' i was thinking a narrow castle with large bushy plants and an undergravel air bar going across the width of tank. Should help persuade them to take the right side:) filter will be placed on the angel side.

    Hi, welcome to the forum!

    Unfortunately, 29 gallons is too small for Angelfish. The rest of your stocking list sounds great though!

    I had a 55 gallon tank with 4 angels and had to get rid of two due too aggression. Now my two have paired up and are fine.

    In a 29 you could possibly do one angelfish but not 2. If they pair up they will be very aggressive towards tankmates while spawning, and if not will be aggressive with each other. One should be okay though.

    I wouldn't keep any angels with kribs in this tank. If they're not a pair, they'll pick on each other and maybe the angel. If they are a pair, their breeding aggression will affect the angel.

    Thank you for the info guys! Il probs go with one then or if i go for two il remove the cribs. They dont appear to have paired anyway. I had them in their own tank for about a month and the female did nothing but chase the male around. He hid behind the filter all the time or blended in at the top corner of the tank. Both seemed pretty unhappy so i put them in my 18g community tank and they tend to leave eachother alone now and socialise more! They love to munch my rcs though...
    Ill add that im not too fussed about the angels breeding... and shall be getting a larger 160-240g tank in september time! So would likely transfer the angels into that:)

    Welcome to fishlore!
    I would only do one angelfish in a 29, personally.

    No, I don't think so. 29 gallons is the minimum for angelfish.

    One angel in a 29, and buy a smallish one to start. I don't have a lot of angel experience but I am sticking with one in my 60G. She immediately staked out her area and nobody messes with her. (I have a ton of tetras). As soon as you add a second angel you need to know what you are doing IMO. Males may fight each other. A matched pair can turn into bigtime thugs with the wrong tank mates. Didn't think I was ready to deal with that. Long way of saying start with one angel and educate yourself. Maybe you'll have a larger tank someday.
