    Add 2 more danios,and the angels will need to be removed the get big.replace the angels with a dwarf gourami.

    Your parameters look good.you might be able to keep one angel or upgrade to a 40 gallon and you can keep both.

    Is my tank still cycled or is it starting over?

    I don't worry about it and just check the PH in my tank besides the A, N, N, Welcome to the forum and the tank looks nice . You have a problem with the temp requirements in that angelfish need 78 to 80 degree temp and your glofish danio should be under 75and can be very nippy with angel fish fins. I would consider doing one or the other unless you have another tank that you could move the danio or angels to. Just a suggestion. :;hi2Alison

    What size tank do I need for them? And how long can they stay in the 20?

    It's ok that's what we're here for.the nip could have have been from the angels,but its more likely from the danios.
