    Do not add Yellow Labs. They do best in a species only tank. Great looking tank! Welcome to Fishlore :D

    Thanks for that quick response, does the 4 Angelfish sound ok? And if I am not going to be adding Yellow Labs, any other suggestions for this tank.... maybe clown loaches?

    Personally, I would not add any Angles. You're pretty well stocked already. You've also get several fish that can be fin nippers, that's bad for Angels. Have you thought about Black Skirt Tetras?

    Clown Loaches can actually get longer than 55 gallon tank is wide. That makes it hard for them to turn around. Clown Loaches really need a much bigger tank.

    Maybe some Rams, i dont have any experience with them, but from what I understand, they're peaceful fish and theyre beautiful.

    Edit; Or! Since you have lots of decorations in the tank, perhaps some sort of invert? For example, shrimp?

    Nice tank, love how colorful it is. I'm going with kimoore on the idea of Rams. While I do think your tank is already well stocked, Rams should make a good addition. Or maybe a small school of Neon Tetra.
