    While planning for our new tank (oh yeah!), the wife and I are not seeing eye to eye with some decisions. The tank is a 36G bowfront and she is set on getting angels. I already told her we could do 1 but that won't be much fun and it'll eat the small fish, which has already happened in the past and they weren't even full grown angels. I think I can sell her on a paradise fish. One of my LFSs has had them quite a bit and they are gorgeous. My concern is their compatability. I have heard so many mixed reviews on them. They are amazing fish. Do they play well with others???

    Think Gourami, they are another species of them. As with any fish its hard to say exactly how their temperament and hostility issues will play out until they are in the tank. I wouldn't see why not though it should work in the tank just fine, if they have multiples of them too possibly exchange for a less aggressive one.
