NOPE.

lol sorry, as juvies they may be okay with a female Betta but as they grow Angel Fish are extremely aggressive and with two very territorial fish in one tank, it's basically a recipe for disaster :-/ I guess you can have them in there for a little while and rehome when they get too big. One Angel needs at least 30 gallons since they grow 6 inches long usually and 8-10 inches tall between dorsal and ventral's. You wouldn't want to drag your hands all around every day would you?

So I'd just forego the angel's for your female Betta. What size tank are you looking at or have?

What is the tank size, exactly? (:

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Guppies, endlers, tetras, snails, and shrimp are good. There are also cory catfish. Just choose whichever one you might possibly get, then we'll tell you the number of fish they need to be in schools or shoals. :D

How about a sorority?

Whoa... You'll probably need more tetras. (like, 3-5 of the same type as now)

What's the bottom feeder? And I think you should return the danio, they're really active and need a 20G long; plus they're much better in schools. (:

out here you are unable to return fish to shop- due to water condition.
A bottom feeder or glass cleaner is one of those orange loack like fish.
what are endlers???

I wouldn't buy anymore fish until you have settled your current stock.

Do you mean loach? They need bigger tanks, as it seems their bioload is high.

I think your tank is already stocked; overstocked, really.
