Tank mate compatibility

Sifat Rahbar Khan

Hey guys, I have a 55 gallon tank with Angelfish and platys. And I've been thinking about adding a few Serpae tetras, but I've heard they're likely to nip fins. If I buy 6-8 tetras too keep them calm, will they still nip the Angelfish fins?

P.S Money IS a factor. I can't get 36 serpaes lol.

Agreed with el337 . If you wanted something other than tetras then cherry barbs or harlequin rasboras would also work. With fin nipping fish in general, you can increase their numbers to minimize nips but with fish that have long flowing fins like gourami's and angels, it's best to avoid fin nipping fish completely.

Thanks guys, I'll stay away from the serpaes for now
