Angel Ratio

Post  jbb on Thu 19 Jul 2012, 20:05

Hi all

New to the forum so Hello...

Prob the most basic and boring question but how many angels per litres of water, iv heard 40 ltres per angel is this right... if not I have a 450 ltr aquarium so how many angels could i get in that with a large shoal of tetras???

Different people have different views, but I find that keeping the tank heavily stocked (within reason) reduces aggression. I have a similar sized tank with well over 20 adult and sub-adult fish. But I have several other tanks, and periodically shuffle things around if they start looking too crowded. If you're going for altums, or indeed any of the wild types, give them a bit more space. If I only had the one tank, and wasn't planning on breeding them, I'd look at about 12 - 16 with a shoal of reasonable sized tetras (something like bleeding hearts or black phantoms).

You can mix whatever combination of different varieties you like; they're all the same species, in my tanks I have all manner of different varieties mixed together.
