Guppies with angel fish, Fire mouth cichlids and Electric Blue Rams!

    Hi guys, is it normal for guppies to be getting along well in a tank with Rams, Fire Mouths, and Angel fish, bare in mind I got all my fish when they were still juvenile as I like to see them grow and progress?

    I think the guppies will eventually become a snack for the angels. Even in very large tanks with lots of hiding places, angels are... persistent.

    They wouldn't last long in my angel tank! And my Rams wouldn't have been too impressed either. Sometimes they can get along for a while but, one day you may wake up and have no guppies... Just something to be aware of.xx

    Yeah the angel has just began to get really territorial, tends to leave the guppies and fire mouth alone and chase one of the electric blue rams around (I have a pair of EVR) I work in an aquatics shop anyway run by my family, so tomorrow am taking the angel and fire mouth back, and picking up a male electric blue ram, because the both I have now are females, cheers guys

    It's probably for the best, but a shame to have to return them. Although, working in an aquatics shop, run by your family seems like the perfect place for them to go :) (I am rather jealous of your job right now!). Good luck with the new Ram!x
