As most of you know I just got my 56 tall tank up and running. I used all the equipment and substrate from the old 36 gallon. Right now I have 3 blue angel 2 cory 7_8 card 7_8 rummy nose 3 balloon rams.
Ive had the angels for about 2 weeks now and have noticed they chase each other. They dint fight no damage is done but it still looks stressful. I went on line and read several articles thst said angel do better in groups of 5 or 6. So do I need to add more? Wouldn't 6 be too msny for a 56 tall? Will the established angels attack the new fish?
My solution to fighting angels was to reduce lines of sight in the aquarium. A couple large plants in the middle and corners gave them places to move around out of sight of the others. They settled down after that, i had 5 angels in a 29 tall and except for the occasional ambush or someone getting too near the current nesting pairs nest they did fine.
In a 56 tall with more than two adult angelfish you'll see squabbles.
They are after all cichlids
