Long-term, no. A breeding pair of angelfish in a 29g is fine, on their own to spawn if that is the intention. Aside from this, angelfish should be maintained in a small group of 5 or more, in a 4-foot minimum tank. They are a shoaling fish, living in groups naturally. You can read more in the profile, click the shaded name, Pterophyllum scalare.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]
