can i kep 2 angelfish in a 40 gallon high
yes, it is recommended a pair get at least 25 gallons so a 40 would be excellent (this is my opinion though and my brother has a pair in one with a school of cherry barbs) others may have something else to offer though...
ok thank you for you input
Yes, you can keep 2 angels in a 40 gallon. They look nice with a school of harlequin rasboras.
Keeping a pair in a 25 gallon would be for breeding only. No other fish would be in the tank.
so i can i might ince i find a home for my blood perrot and can a group of 5 tiger barbs live with them because i just got the group as a preasent
If you end up with male and female Angels, you'd have a bit of a war zone. Tiger Barbs are semi aggressive and Angels are very aggressive if they breed. There is also a good chance that the Tigers would nip the fins on the Angels.
I wouldn't even keep a breeding pair in a 25, that's just not enough space in my opinion. Also definitely no tiger barbs with angels, for the reason CN stated.
25 gallons for a breeding pair is very common. I know Catsma uses a 25. I use a 29 for my pair.
o i wont ten what else can i get
A mated pair of angels will do fine in a 40 gallon. A non-pair will not. They are far too aggressive with each other and why I keep one in one 55 gallon and one in another 55 gallon. I would keep one if I was you but NOT with Tiger Barbs. Even if you should end up with a mated pair, they spawn about every 20 days and you'd need numerous tanks for all the fry. What's the matter with your blood parrot? I LUV my blood parrots! They've been my favorite fish yet.
Totally agree! I would not even keep one in 25 gallons.
the tank is to small for him or so I've been told
For a full grown blood parrot, yeah a 40 tall is too small. Have you thought about any dwarf Cichlids, like rams?
rams are nippy and kill every thing ive had one and the blood perrot is between 2 and 2.5 inches how big wil he get before i have to upgrade
I have never had my rams bother anyone other than staking out territories between each other. You must have gotten a mean one. That or it did not feel secure.
my tank was heavely planted he killed a oscar !!! i was kepping it temporarily it was 3 inches long and i come home one day and there it is dead pshyduck
He killed an OSCAR?! That fish had to have been sick or something. Oscars are far more aggressive than rams. And yush n.n
I have two rams in my 55 gallon community and they've never acted the least bit aggressive. I also have a dwarf cichlid in another tank (the fish in my avatar) and he isn't the least bit aggressive either.
dont ask how but he did hes also a little fin nipper can i put a african dwarf frog in my tank
