That would probably be enough. The angles need a good amount of room, so I wouldn't add any more fish.

What kind of pleco do you have?

The cory must be kind of lonely. They like groups of at least 3, but I do not know if you can sdd anymore.

The pleco will eventually grow too large for the tank, unless it's a bristlenose plec. Are you planning on trading him out? I added a pleco to my 28g tank last night, but I know i'll have to trade him for a smaller one in a couple months. Another concern about the pleco is that they have a tendancy to grate against other fish at night (plecos are nocturnal), and could potentially cause some damage to those angels or even the cory. The cory should be kept in a group of 3 +, like Cody said. If it were me, I'd trade that pleco out for a couple more corys, but I'd totally understand if you just like the pleco too much to part with him. My pleco is just for algae control, and I wish I could do without him. lol

I'm not sure if my lfs carries bushynose plecos, but I'll have to take a look. Hopefully I won't need the pleco in a couple months, once the tank is fully planted and filled out. Right now I have too much like and not enough plants, so the algae is thriving.... unfortunatly.

*"too much light and not enough plants" is what I meant to say... not too much "like". lol

There are many "dwarf" plecostomus', not just bushynose. Butterfly plecos stay rather small. If you are looking for algae eaters try flying foxes.
