Im about to get a new tank pretty soon and I want some angelfish and a male cockatoo cichlid, I was wondering if they would get along since this site says that cockatoo cichlids are peaceful unless they're about to breed. That's why i only plan on getting one. It also says that angelfish are peaceful. But i saw somewhere else that angelfish and south american cichlids don't get along at all. This confuses me since both are peaceful.. help?? By the way don't worry I don't plan on getting any of these fish until the nitrogen cycle is completed.

welcome to FishLore!
What size tank are you looking to set up. Size has alot to do with whether it will work or not.

I had angel fish and cockatoo cichlids together for three years with no problems. I moved the cockatoos out when both species started spawning...no troubles other than very few fry of either ever survived. The Cockatoos stayed more to the bottom of the tank and the Angels in the middle. The cockatoos would need hiding places to rest in...they don't care for large open spaces.

Actually I had angel fish, Cockatoos and Borelli all in the same tank with no problems, except erritory disputes between the dwarf cichlids...but none of them ever got hurt. It's a 55 gal long tank.
