Getting ready to pull the trigger on a 55 gallon complete setup with LED lights, canister filter, heater, ect. The tank will cycle quickly as it still has fish in it and the guy is giving the gravel in the package (as well as what's in the filter) as well. My idea for a community tank is as follows:
Golden Angel
6 male guppies
6 zebra danios
6 harlequin rasboras
6 corys (not bronchis)

Thoughts? Suggestions? Keep suggestions affordable, lol.

How big is the angel? Angels have been known to eat anything that fits in their mouths. I'm afraid your danios and rasboras may become fair game.

honestly, i think that the angel will be fine. you're more likely to have fin nipping be an issue than actually having it eat another fish.

Haven't purchased anything yet. Will buy it as small as possible and it will be the last to go in. I know they can be aggressive.

Hoping that the other schooling fish will be fast enough to not be easy prey. I know angels are slower swimmers and like to chill

Zebra danios need cooler temperatures than the Angels so I'd leave those out & up the number of harlequins & have one of the larger species of tetras such as diamond or bleeding hearts instead of the guppies.
You could have a ram or gourami & for the corys sterbai would be good as they can handle the higher temperature & are easily sourced.

It depends on the angel, they all have different personalities, mine live quite peacefully with black neons.
The danios would be more likely to nip the angel.

New idea, pearl gourami, 6 turquoise rainbows, 10 harlequin rasboras, and a redtail shark. How would the rasboras fair in with those bigger fish?
I don't know about the rainbows, but since the shark will be on the bottom and the harlequins are more mid-top, I think it'll be fine.
