    I am expecting delivery of my 55g tank at the end of the week and I have eagerly researching the tank cycle on fishlore (thanks for all the helpfull info) and can't wait to get started.

    Ultimatley I would like to have a community tank wsome angels and would like some info on what fish to stock once the tank has cycled. I've read that angels will eat neon tetras but can be ok with them if tetras are stocked first and the angels, when introduced, are young? I was also thinking of getting some guppies and moving them to a smaller tank for my daughter once they have done their job?

    Your advice would be a great help

    I still wouldn't risk keeping angels with neon tetras. Angels get pretty big. I would advise on some corydoras as bottom feeders.

    From what I've read about angels if the neons are small enough to be eaten they could be. I'd avoid any fish small enough to be eaten by angels. Post pics
