20 gal long to small?
I have 5 angels in a 75 gal and there all pretty young guessing between 3 and4 months old i plan to breed them but my intention are to see them pair off...(hopefully) and then put the pair in a 20 long to spawn and then remove the parents is this an ok idea? Any advice?
It depends upon the size of the fish. Angelfish can spawn while still relatively small, say 2+ inches in length (mine did) and a 20g would work for these. But if you have larger fish, increase the space accordingly. A 30g [29g, 25g are very close] is generally suggested for a spawning pair.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
