I have a 50 Gal tank with 4 guppies, 3 lyretail mollies, 5 regular mollies, 3 cory cats an algea eater and a gourami. I'd like to add an Angelfish...is this safe/feasible??? I certainly don't want any more aggression (had to get all these female mollies to stop my males from fighting), but also would love to add an agel to my collection. Any help would be appreciated.

Angels and Gouramis don't usually go well together.

both liveaquaria.com say that angelfish and gouramis are compatible.

Gouramis tend to pick at the fins of Angel fish. Those sites also say Gouramis are peaceful fish. In my experience this has not been the case. They can be very aggressive and territorial as can the Angelfish. Although it would make a beautiful display thats why I advise not to put them together.

I guess I should correct myself...he's actually a dwarf gourami...sorry. Although he does have a fav. spot of the aquarium, he is quite docile towards the other fish...has not nipped at anyone yet....hmmm. How about guppys....would the angel try to have them for lunch?  :-\
