    I recently bought three angelfish. 1 veil altum and 2 kois. I was wondering if I can add 6 platys in about 1-2 months? The angels Are small around A quarter size still. Its a 55 gallon tank with 1 pleco as a tank mate.

    I wouldn't add platys as they need harder water than the angels, if you're wanting a reddish colour fish to go with the angels you could have a group of cherry barbs instead.
    The angels won't stay small for long so watch out for a pair forming as they get bigger if you have a mixed sex group as the odd one out may get picked on

    Corade there is already a pair. My kois always hang together and never separate. The altum doesnt mind them. I want livebearers not just a reddish color .
