Apisto Cacs and Angels. Friends or Foes?

I have 2m and 2f apisto cacs in a 30g species tank. I want to move them into a 38g with 3 angels. the angels are all over 3.5" body leangth and the apisto's are 1.25"f and 2"m. Do you think the apisto's will be ok? Furthermore there are also 6 other 1.5" livebearers in the 38g.

Second question. The Ph in the apisto tank is about 6.2, the ph in the angel tank is about 7.4. Will a slow drip acclimation for an hour be enough time to get the apisto's comfortable with the ph of 7.4?

Peace,
Ry

cacs stay mostly on the bottom while angels usually inhabit the middle area...they should be fine....except for the occasional "face off" which all cichlids are prone to do

As long as nobody's breeding that is.

I dunno... The 38's current population seems a bit of a squeeze to me. Adding two potential breeding pairs of another species of cichlid seems to be asking for trouble.

that is my worry. There is a pair of angels and the male get medium aggresive and there is a pair of cacs and the 1.25"f and 2"m get aggresive as well. It is also a HEAVELY planted low-tech.
