Hi all, I've got a question about stocking angelfish.

Right now I've got a 54 gallon corner tank with 6 each of silvertip, black phantom, and cardinal tetras, and 5 salt and pepper corys. I've also got a 36 with 4 mollies that I recently purchased. My question is, I was thinking of getting a small group of baby/small angelfish next, and I was planning on putting them with the tetras, but a thread I saw on here mentioned that the angels might go a little better with the mollies, along with maybe some guppies. Any thoughts?

As long as the tetras that you keep are not fin nippers than the angles should be fine. Also as the angels grow you don't want them with tiny fish that they can swallow. Welcome to the forum and glad you're here. Alison

A large enough school of tetras would be less likely to nip as they will be too distracted by each other

I was thinking of getting about 6 baby angels, the LFS I go to has them smaller than the cardinals length-wise. Also more plants and cardinals, since they're the smallest right now and are just hanging toward the bottom of the tank. Has anyone else seen their cardinals eating sinking tablets instead of floating flakes/pellets?
