    Hi tyler_medeiros, Typically they say 20 gallons per Angelfish. I've always felt like that was a little overkill. Angelfish aren't a large bodied fish, but I would still only go with about 4 in the 90 gallon with 5 Dwarf Neon Rainbows. You want about 5 for them to shoal and they only get about 2 1/2 inches long. With 4 Angelfish, 5 Dwarf Neon Rainbows and 2 Cories you'll be pushing the bacterial filter a little, but really shouldn't be to difficult to manage. With a lot of greenery (suggest artificial) it will make a gorgeous tank.

    ok so ive been doing some more reaserch and i would prefer to do an amazon themed tank. Therefore i would like to put five of something else in place of the five rainbows. I was thinking of larger tetras or dwarf cichlids.
    what do you think.

    Bleeding Heart is still my favorite. Other large Tetras that would be good are the Penguin Tetras that you mentioned earlier and Buenos Airies Tetras.

    I was going to suggest Penguin tetras as well.

    How many angles would need to be taken out in order to have 4 or five of all three of those tetras.

    You could still probably get by with 3 Angelfish without too much difficulty.

    :shock: Where can I get that loach!? That looks awesome!

    With a 90 gallon tank you don't have too many restrictions. If you want to go community(the cheapest), I would go with some mollys, platys, tetras(there are tons of them), fancy male guppies(there are a ton of color combos with the males), and swordtails. My parents have a 60 community set up, and they have so many colors and so much action.
