Pacific Blue Eyes with Angelfish


Recommended Posts

The next tank project I'm planning is a high tech planted tank. The tank is 4 foot (120cm) length x 50cm height x 40 width, meaning its capacity would be about 180L. I plan on using a specialised plant substrate (not quite sure which yet) and a high powered T5 light fitting, and a co2 setup, to grow a foreground carpet of mainly Lilaeopsis microswords, and smaller crypts moving back into the focal point of branching driftwood with moss, surrounded by larger crypts and amazon swords which will give way to a background curtain of vallisneria. It's all very exciting :cheer:/>

For stocking, I'm thinking a school of cories, I'm thinking peppered for bottom dwellers, and a group of around 6 wildtype angelfish. My thinking in the way of schooling fish was some kind of tetra - silvertip, black neon, etc... but then the thought of rainbows occurred to me - I've loved Australian Rainbows since I first discovered them, particularly Pacific Blue Eyes and Spotted Blueyes, but I've never actually kept them.

SO in short my question would be surrounding stocking advice. Does anyone have any experience of keeping Pacific Blue eyes with Angelfish? I'd be buying all the fish as juveniles, and Pacific Blue eyes apparently grow to about 7cm, do you think this would be big enough to keep them safe from the Angels as time goes on?
