    Well I may be getting a 55 gallon tank with stand, lights, lid and 2 filters for $90. I have fallen in love with my Angelfish and I would really like to keep my Algae Eater for as long as possible because he's grown on me. If I do get the 55 it will slowly be built up. I want it to be planted so it'll take awhile for me to get sand, stones, driftwood, etc. What are some peoples stocking suggestions? What plants can I get? What should I get for hiding places?

    I'll definitely have 2 Angels minimum and my Algae Eater, and probably my 2 current Swordtails as I think in the place I'm renting 2 tanks is to much. But other than that, ideas!?

    I'd worry about the CAE eating the slime coat off the angels...

    The CAE will eat the angel fish's slime coat. They also will get too big for this size tank....
