Are any of the following compatible with angels?

Sciaenochromis fryeri

Cyrtocara moorii

Thank You!

Hey Tab,

No, I don't think so. They are from Lake Malawi, where the water is cooler, and much harder, while your Angels are from South America, like wamer, and softer water. Not a good idea to mix cichlid from two different continents.

I am so sorry, I didn't realize that you had angels in your tank, you are going to have a hard time finding a blue fish that is compatible with them. Unless you go with Discus? Have you considered that? There are some very loud colored discus out there.
