can you put any electric yellows in with angel fish and 10 tetras?

Electric yellow's are an African Cichlid from Lake Malawi and should be only be kept with other fish from that region. They require a pH level of 7.5 - 8.5 and also in a tank much larger than your 50 litre tank. Angelfish are a South American Cichlid and require a pH of only 6.5 - 7.5 (approx). So the two cannot really co-exist in the same tank. Also Angelfish can grow to 15cm and should really be kept in a much larger tank. Hope this helps :)

hey mitchie, I think your biggest issue is your tank size, 50L is too small for elecy yellows imo.

You should consider a pair rams or apistos instead as they are from the same region as your angels and are quite small.

But still, 50L is even pushing it for them. You might have to just be happy with what you have, or get another tank :)
