    I have a 75 gallon tank that is 18x48x21 tall and I was wondering if I could stock these fish into the tank

    Some feedback about their compatibility would be nice too. Thanks, Jon

    1 pleco

    Angels prefer cooler water. What kind of gouramis and what Plecos species?

    Probably some black or silver mollies.

    If you get a pleco, make sure it’s not a commen pleco as they can get over a foot long.

    Instead of a pleco get cories

    I want to warn you that many “bottom cleaner” fish don’t do a good job. They need their own food, etc.
    sounds like an exciting tank! Beware with angels - ours has turned into a real bully, but we aren’t rehoming her.

    Both do need their own food but cories seem to do a better job at cleaning and sifting the bottom than a pleco. I have 8 bronze cories in my 75g and the BDBS substrate is almost always clean. I have 12 peppered cories in a 40g and they do a good job too.

    Maybe a BN Pleco to help with algae and a school of 6-12 cories. I'd also double your tetras and danios.
