I was told at my local fish store that Angelfish and Neon tetra would be okay together. I was just looking for a second opinion. I was not sure because I was looking around and found people saying when they are both adults there could be problems. Is there any problem or am I okay and I don't have to worry.
Thanks in advance,
The angelfish will be fine with the neon tetras when young but when they are older they will eat the neon tetras.
Angelfish are semi-aggressive tropical fish.
Neon tetras are tropical fish.
Those are two different communities.
It is best not to put them together.
I have about 20 neons and cardinal tetras with 5 very large angle fish. the angle fish do hassle each other but leave all other fish alone. I do feed then well but do not take any notice of the neons. Actually the neon are not impressed by the angles either as they 'steal' their food when I feed them.
hi joey i all so had neons in with mixed aged angels and never had any problems with neons going missing
Angelfish usually develop aggressive personalities as they mature, and they will eat smaller fish like neons and cardinals. Perhaps when the species are kept together for a long time starting when the angelfish are small juveniles, it will not immediately occur to the angelfish that the tetras are a food source.
