 Don't  put  them  in  tanks  with  powerful  currents.
 At  younger  age  even  loaches  can  kill  them.
 Do  give  them  planted  tanks

 Before  suggesting  the  dos  and  don'ts  let  us  know  what  are  your  plans  on  keeping  the  angels...
 
 1.  how  many  fishes  are  u  plannin  to  keep
 2.  what  is  the  size  of  the  tank  you  have
 3.  are  u  plannin  to  go  for  a  community  tank  or  species  tank
 4.  are  u  plannin  for  a  planted  tank
 
 it  would  be  easy  for  us  to  suggest  the  dos  and  don'ts  once  we  know  the  answers  for  these?

 1.dont  keep  them  in  tanks  with  1  foot  height...at  least  18  inches.
 2.dont  mix  them  with  fin  nippers  and  other  aggressive  cichlids.
 3.Will  be  more  happier  in  a  planted  tank  but  a  bare  bottom  tank  will  do  too
 4.Keep  them  in  at  least  a  group  of  6

 Well,  I  have  setup  a  4.5'x2'x20"  planted  tank  with  Tetras,  plattys,  mollys  etc.  Am  thinking  of  adding  a  few  Angels  too.  But  then  there  is  some  amt  of  current  in  the  tank  water  as  I  have  a  Dymax  powerhead  for  better  water  circulation.  So  what  should  I  do?  Is  adding  angels  in  this  setup  advisable?

 1.If  you  want  to  buy  angels  in  a  group  buy  atleast  6  of  them.
 2.  just  ensure  that  they  are  of  the  same  size  as  the  larger  ones  might  tend  to  disturb  the  smaller  ones
 3.  angels  will  grow  fast  and  might  pick  on  small  tetras  and  might  even  kill  them.
 4.  angels  prefer  a  external  filter  than  a  internal  power  filter
 5.  regular  angels  might  pick  the  slow  moving  fishes.
 
 otherwise  its  fine  to  keep  angels!

 angels  r  very  sensitive  fishes  and  needs  very  gud  water  with  less  acidic  content
 also  abt  temp,  they  must  be  maintained  constantly  
 angels  don  get  sick  easily  but  if  they  get  its  very  tough  to  make  them  back  in  gud  condition
 also  keep  only  angels  and  no  gold  fishes  in  tank  for  sure
 they  might  kill  the  gold  easily  and  angel  chase  small  and  slow  fihes  around  the  tank  all  the  time  and  like  to  nip  their  fins  always
 anyway  gud    luck  in  keeping  angels
 they  r  one  of  the  favs  of  mine

 Hi  Saugata
 I  had  introduced  small  angels  in  my  livebearer  tank.  
 My  Mollies  and  swordtails  chased  them,  ultimately  I  lost  these  four  angels.  
 But  if  you  put  in  large  angels,  they  might  hound  everyone  else.  Very Happy  
 BTW  what  tetra's  do  you  have.

 Infact  that's  what  I  am  thiniking.  Have  decided  not  to  introduce  the  angels  and  would  rather  continue  with  small  fishes  only.  Maybe  will  add  some  more  Tetras  as  that  would  really  make  the  planted  tank  look  beautiful.

 Angels  only  trouble  others  in  following  cases:
 1)  When  they  are  of  breeding  age.
 2)  When  underfed.
 3)  New  angels  added  to  a  tank  of  previously  housed  angels.
 
 IMO,  in  a  tank  as  large  as  yours,  they  wont  trouble  neons/rummy's  if  you  are  properly  feeding  them.
 
 IN  FACT,  a  few  smaller  tetras  might  go  after  the  angel's  long  flowing  fins.
 
 Regards,
 amod.

 When  they  are  small  angels  can  be  kept  with  neons  but  as  soon  as  they  grow  they  will  start  killing  them.I  had  the  two  together  for  months  and  then  I  started  losing  my  neons,though  I  never  saw  an  angel  killing  them.  I  just  realised  there  was  1  or  2  gone  every  time  I  counted  them.After  I  put  the  angels  in  another  tank  the  neons  are  fine.I  have  an  internal  filter  and  my  angels  are  fine
