    That should be fine. If possible try and get a bigger raphael than the texas when you get them. They should both grow to around 10 inches so you need a descent size tank. At least a 75 in my opinion. Have some caves or hiding spots for them too.

    Yea thanks. iv had texas before but not a raphel. I want to put them in my 55 untill one or both outgrow it and have a few bigger tanks. Im just thinking of options as iv gotten to efficient with my discus and have more time for other species and looking around at options.

    That should be fine too. Adding them at the same time usually helps to insure that they can both claim territory. Rather than adding one then the other. Sometimes when you do this, the first fish you put in has already claimed the entire tank as their own.
