    Can I keep 2 angelfish and some glofish? I know glofish are zebra danios and angels might attack and glos can fin nip. But, I have a 75 gal tank and stocking 40 gal worth of fish. So plenty of room for them to stay away from each other.also how many glofish will I need to make a comfortable school for them?

    No, glo danios need water below 75f while angels need water above 78f

    Edit: 6 minimum for a school but they are happier in larger groups

    Don't wanna doubt you. But, says that they can be in temps 64F- 86F but glofish are comfortable in 70F-80F.
    Edit: They are comfortable in 72F-80F

    The glofish website is very inaccurate it also says "About 25-50% of the water in your tank should be changed at least once a month." and that they can be kept in 1.5 gallon tanks.

    Glo danios do well in water 68-75f so around 72f is best

    What are the consequences of glofish bring in warmer temps?

    Their metabolism increases greatly, they are more susceptible to disease and live much shorter lives. It is cruel.

    My wife had a 10 gal tank with some glofish 2 of each color well that tank started to leak and the only place we had to put them was in my 125 with my discus and that's where they have been for the last year maybe more and that tank is kept at 82 -83 degrees.

    I wouldn't put GloFish in with the angelfish. The GloFish would get eaten right away.

    In my 55 I have 6 bright red zebra Glo danios. They dart about so fast my angels don't stand a chance! Also, the danios play in the fast current. Several dither fish (male guppies and the odd tail light fish ) have been fine. My angels prefer the slower side plus any shrimp I may add as a special treat . IMO all will be fine.
