ah ok i was worried because 5 angels need lots of space and they will get aggressive if not enough. i myself have a female sorority betta tank with a 3 spot gourami in a 55 and they do fine no aggression. id be more concerned with the angels.

The angels in my experience they are more aggressive than the bettas and 3 spot gourami. My gourami is pretty docile and doesnt nip at anyone. How long you had your tank and angels? how big are the angels?

My angels are very peaceful with other fish, my smallest is 2 inches and my biggest is 4 1/2 inches. I've had them for about 2 months.

Yes they do tend to be calm and peaceful but just out of nowhere some fish will just become aggressive and mostly territorial. Again because you do have a pretty big tank that tends to help them stay peaceful just keep an eye out i wouldnt be surprised to see the biggest angel pushing around the gouramis and especially the smaller angels. A single betta i think is fine just make sure when you feed that he gets his share of food and the other fish dont bully and push him around out of food.

Ok! I'm going to go ahead and try it out since my angels are very peaceful compared to others I've seen. Hopefully the beta I get is also peaceful. Fingers crossed.

I would be very careful when my angelfish started pairing off they tend to get very aggressive I now have four 29s and a 37 with pairs and two 55s full of juveniles its your choice just remember angelfish are still cichlids and can act like one
