    hi all, long time no see.
    i just started getting inyo angels, i have some throw backs, they look like scarlas, but i know there run of the mill domestcated angels.
    would it matter if i raise them in my planted tank or bb, would they stunt in a planted tank?
    i ask cause thats what would happen with discus, by the way im still into discus.

    Angels will do fine in a planted tanks as long as they have open spaces. If the tank is heavily planted with tall plants you may have some issues.

    What size is the tank is still the big issue Wink 29g+ and you are good though I preferred to grow mine out in at least a 55g and all my tanks were jungles and they did just fine

    There are more informed folks on here but I allocate about 8-10 Gallons per fish. I'll push it if it's well established and planted.

    go with 6, thats the best number to get a breeding pair or 2 out of. 6 will spread the pre breeding aggression as well. they do best in even numbers for some reason....
