Go for 7. I have a group of 7 in my 115g, they are very social...and often swim and "rest" down mid-tank, something the Carnegiella species do much less often, rarely in fact.

I look at the broad picture, by which I mean, what is the very best for as many of the fish as possible within the given situation. Keeping all but one fish happy and thus healthier seems better to me, rather than maybe keeping some fish happy and many others less healthy. If that makes sense.

So, I would leave the angle out of the larger tank and put the other fish in where they will certainly be happier and healthier than in a 20g.

The angel is the loser, but it is also the biggest risk in with others. And as for adding more angels even in larger quarters, that is another risk. This is mentioned in the profile; adding angels to an existing angel or even group usually--not always, but usually--results in dead angels.

This is about the best i can offer.

Byron.
