Should I have angelfish in this tank? I have a 75g tank that I am in the process of stocking. I have always been a tetra kind of person, but was thinking I might want to branch out and try a different kind of fish. I was considering angelfish, but I have some concerns that I wanted to see if anyone could help me with. 1. I have fairly soft water ( 4 drops GH but 9 drops KH), but the pH is between 8 and 8.5 (I don't have the most precise test kit right now). I have read that angelfish need acidic water for spawning. If I'm not interested in breeding an angelfish, will it be ok in a slightly elevated pH? Some of my tetras prefer a lower pH as well, but I was told by others on this forum that it was better to keep a consistent pH than try to lower it to an "acceptable" range. Does this apply for angelfish as well or are they more sensitive? 2. I already have a small school of harlequin rasbora in the tank. Will angelfish cohabitate with these fish and maybe some cardinal or rummy-nose tetras? 3. I don't have any live plants in the tank. I do have a variety of fake plants, but have not attempted to tackle live plants. I have read that angelfish like to have a planted tank. Should I focus on plants first before getting an angelfish? 4. I am not interested in breeding angelfish I just want one as a companion pet so to say. Do I need to have them in a school like the tetras or are they solitary fish? Most of the things I'm reading about them is based on breeding them. Sorry this is so long. I really appreciate you reading through this to help me decide if my tank is a right fit for angelfish or not.
