    angelfish are cichlids, they prefer to be in pairs not schools, FMK. I doubt you'll be able to get all one gender, but if you can then they would probably be fine.

    I think you should find the recite for him, he may not make it. Maybe add some fake plants for now to give him more hiding places then just rocks?

    [QUOTE=homedog98;2697435]first up, put at least 5 cherry barbs in the angel tank while it's growing up. Otherwise the cherry barbs could very well become snacks...
    QUOTE]

    Cherry barbs grow to 2 inches, so unless you have a large angel and very young cherry barbs, the barbs won't be in danger of being eaten. No need to acclimatize a young angel to fish that, as adults, will be too large for the angel to consume.

    Angels are nearly impossible to sex, especially as juveniles. I've heard some hobbyists say the area of the body under the pecoral fins is squared off in either males or females (can't remember which), but you would only be able to observe this in sexually mature individuals. Your best bet is to just remove the spawning pair(s) out of the group of angels you acquire.

    angelfish along with oscars and other cichlids naturally school in nature. i dont even know where the recite is.

    ive also heard of sexing them by there heads. a male will have a more rounded head while the females are more pointed.

    Just wanted to say good luck on your 55 gallon, I'm jealous you have a parrot, they are adorable!! and you can send the betta and pleco next week now so they get here Fri/Sat Or sooner if need be, I can always make a quick run to the post office to pick them up if I miss them, as long as they don't get here Tuesday I am good Sorry about the delay! I'd pm, but my computer won't let me now for some reason
