Angelfish in a 30

Can it be done? I would really like angelfish and I have a 30 that just melted down, partly because of my own inexperiance . But that is in the past, and I want to get it back up and running and was wondering again about angelfish in my 30 gallon, like how many and those numbers.

What are the dimensions of your tank?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Instinctively I would say no but the dimensions will be important.

1) You are definitely "on the right track here" with respect to the depth of the tank being one of the major controlling factors but

2) and please excuse me here but IMHO in order to raise angels to their full size a 30" deep tank is necessary.


Please note that "I really hope that 2) is correct" or I have spent "maybe 25% more" on this money pit (which I call my aquarium) than was necessary.

Tank will be okay for one angel or a breeding pair.
