Aside from a group, you run risks; a mated pair (angels do not accept any mate) in a 29g is fine, but I wouldnot recommend anything else. Check the profile for more.
The fish that will be in the 75g will kill angels in a heart beat. If the only way angels will live together in that small tank is if there mated then ill just use one or maybe another center piece fish.

Well, I can only offer suggestions based upon my knowledge and experience, and I would never buy one or two angelfish, or 3 or even 4 for that matter; either a mated pair, or a group in a suitable sized tank. This is providing what the fish have evolved to need, and that is always the safer road.

As with so much of this hobby, it is always "possible" that this or that will work, but given the evidence as to what occurs the majority of the time...I do not believe in taking risks with fish, and I won't honestly recommend such to others. When it fails, everyone loses. The citations in my signature below say it all.
