Can a single fully grown angelfish go in a standard 30 gallon thank with other community fish?
Let me start by saying I've never kept angels before, but I believe a single angel needs a minimum 20 gallons, then 10 gallons for each additional angel. I'm sure you'll get some more responses though. What else were you thinking of keeping with the single angel?
Keep the substrate minimal as to take advantage of as much water depth as possible.
1 angel, 6 dwarf neons, and 2 bolivian rams is the plan so far Sent from my SM-G900V using Fish Lore Aquarium Fish Forum mobile app
Something you might want to consider also, neons may become a snack for the angel especially if it's full grown
Dwarf neon rainbows get 3" how will they become a snack? lol unless im missing something about angles.......lol
Angelfish can reach 6" and they WILL try to eat anything that fits in their mouths, including 2" neon tetras.
It's a fish eat fish world out there. (I actually thought you had Neon Tetras not rainbows)
Forgot to mention also that yes, you are missing something.. Angelfish are part of the Cichlidae family... yes distant relatives of mbuna and other African cichlids.
Lol I know they are cichlids I was just confused how they would eat a 3" fish as they have small mouths. But it was a miscommunication lol so never mind.
They won't eat dwarf rainbows. He thought you were talking about neon tetras which they WILL eat. Basically, you don't want anything smaller than 2 inches with a full grown Angel, and if you're looking to keep ram fry you can probably forget about it unless your ram can actually scare off the Angel, which I doubt. Overall your stocking seems fine.
Not a 20g, a 30 would be fine though.....
Awesome i got a 30g for free as a step up from my 20 Sent from my SM-G900V using Fish Lore Aquarium Fish Forum mobile app
