    Hi

    I am just thinking if angel fish would be agressive to platys or it would be ok to keep them together i have a 120 liter tank will that be big enough for the angles and platys and maybe some swordtails and guppies

    angels love platy guppies or swordtails..... they can take out a whole population of fry over night.

    I think it really depends on the angel.I have an angel in with all the fish you mentioned and hes harmless.i think if it was raised with smaller fish it might have a better tolerance.

    Just my 2 Cents

    either a single angel with some tank mates or a pair with a small school of tetras(black neons).. but be mindful that angels will eat small tetras.(if you decide on these get the adults)

    Small tetras will be small snacks when the angels get bigger. Better to get some slightly bigger tetras of a non nippy type. Diamond tetra or head and tail lights maybe.

    Black neons are considerably bigger than regular neons. IMO they should be fine w/ an angel..........

    To be honest a 30g is small for even one angel overtime. You will be able to keep 1 to 2 angels for no more than a year before they start getting crowded. The get very tall. Before I gave my large male away that was 5yrs old his body was around 4 1/2" round, from caudal to dorsal fin he was around 9", and from tail fin to nose he was around 5 1/2". That is a big fish.

    Last thought. One is what you could keep, and two would need a larger home in several years. If you get two and they are M and F say goodbye to all your other fish in a 30g.
