That's not good news. I had read that gouramI an angelfish go goodLaxin10 said:Pretty much everything you have listed in there is a problem, depending on the kind of pleco. Generally gouramI and bettas should never be kept together except in a large aquarium, and I wouldn't mix gourami, especially concerning three spot gourami. And on top of this, angelfish will go after everything you have in there.

That is not good news. The angelfish are my favorite and I looked online and consulted with the fish store and they said the gouramis are compatible. I'm pretty new to fish and I've killed way too many so I'm super happy that these ones are alive. I originally had the angelfish the betta and the pletco in a 10 gallon. And I realized that the fish were going to get too big so I upgraded to the 36 gallon tank. I have a 5 gallon tank with one frog in it I could probably move the betta in that tank. The 3 spot gouramI is a food hog. At this point though everybody is getting along. That's why I said I Am brand new to fish so I'm open to suggestionsGeorgiefrogs said:I have a 36 gallon cycled bow front tank. Currently I have 3 angelfish, 1 sunrise gourami, 1 three spot gourami,
I replied in the thread but I'm new to this forum thing so I didn't realize I should have replied directly to youNavyChief20 said:how attached to that betta and gouramI are you? I'm assuming the Angels are young still because they will go after the betta and gourami's as they get bigger
I replied to the thread not the individual comments so can you look at my response on the thread? Sorry I didn't realize I was supposed to respond to each individual personFlipFlopFishFlake38 said:You have some stocking issues, if you want to discuss, it probably will be hard to a stock with it's current inhabitants.
NavyChief20 said:Dont worry Georgie we read all the comments and we are here to help. You have to be careful with fish stores. I am lucky because my petco and petsmart have some fish people that are actually fish keepers. I have seen them refuse to sell fish to people because of tank size or they are buying the tank and fish at the same time.
The angels are cichlids, I exclusively keep cichlids and MOST of them are aggressive. Many of them are downright mean. Angels are aggressive and mean. Your betta will not last long. The gouramis with their modified pectoral fins will incite the angels wrath and they will stress out or become food. 3 angels in a 36 gallon is at a limit. Depending on their gender you might be off a bit. They don't get huge but they can get big. Plecos generally speaking don't attract attention of other fish. However my sons convicts do chase his clown pleco.
NavyChief20 said:that's good sized for them. Angels can be tough tank mates. I would stabilize the "feel" then look at tank mates. nothing aggressive and nothing that is a fin nipper or has long fins.
