In the tank would be a pair of rams we have that seem nice and mabey something else not a lot.
We just want the tank to look nice next to our reef tank. My wife loves angel fish
Three juvenile angelfish could work in 28 gal. I have kept as many as nine dime sized angelfish in 29 gal until approx quarter sized ,with twice weekly water changes of 40 to 50 percent and no other fish.
Trouble with getting three, is that they may all three be male or female, can't really sex them until they pair off and even then close examination is needed . Is why some ,,purchase these fish in larger groups to help increase the odds of getting a pair.
Let us say you get a pair and spawning,, if that is your aim, occurs. You will need grow out tank('s) for the young at some point.
Add to this the frequent feedings needed for the young fish (Fry) to develop, and water changes to maintain water quality may need to be daily.
Am not trying to discourage you from keeping the fish that interest you just attempting to offer things that you should consider should spawning be something you are considering.
Larger tank would allow more flexibility with keeping a group of these fish that can reach adult size in six to eight months in the soft warm water that they appreciate.
