I have a bully. Need your advice

Hi everyone
I have a 56 gallon tall. I have 3 blue angel fish. Lately one has become a bully to the other angel. He doesn't bother the rams or the tetra. The tank is pretty heavily planted but most are still small. I have a cpl of caves for the others to retreat to. If I catch him and find him a home will one of the others just take his place? If I added a cpl more would that help? Im not sure my tank would be big enough for 5? He doesn't seem to do any harm and the other 2 are right back out within a cpl of min. All 3 eat like hogs.
Thanks

Angels are funny...cichlids occasionally work in odd numbers, but to be totally honest, if there is a pair that gets along I'd just keep it at that. I plan on doing angels in my 75, and I only want to have a pair.

Otherwise, you'd need 6 angels or more, and then remove them as aggression rises due to constricting space and pairing off.

Yes it is..since its a tall tank...and you are not putting there breeding pair...these are still juveniles. If you like to breed in future remove others and have all tank space for a pair. I would highly suggest you not to breed angels...very hard works and no resale value at all...

Cheers!!!
