How many angel fish can be kept in a 10 gallon tank?
Thank you,
Kevin

Hi, Kevin :welcome:

10 gallons isn't much room for angels. I wouldn't even keep a pair in anything less than 20g. In cramped quarters they will get agressive...often even in spacious digs! :biggrin:

Jude,
Thanks for the reply. I figured it may be a long shot. I used to keep angel fish years ago and am thinking of keeping them again, just not in the same tank with my discus...

wow this is an old fourm but I'll answer anyways. 10 gallons yeah to small. I had 55 gallon and 7 full adults where ok but thats pushing it, i had a runt in that 7 and after about a year or to it died.

Angels and discus vary touch subtject, people say no people say yes. I say yes I have a 112 gallon tank and there 9 adult discus in there and I put 6 young angels like not even quarter size and they trived and now I have 5 adult angels with my discus. Just food for thought.[img][fullalbumimg]2838[/fullalbumimg][img]%20hope%20this%20works.[/img]

I would not hesitate to use the same standard for angels as i use for discus . 50 ltrs ( 10 gallon ?) at least for each fish and it is a shoaling fish :thumbsup:
