Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. Nice to have you with us.
One feature we have is the fish and plant profile section, under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. Many species are included, and if the common or scientific name is used in a post exactly as in the profile, it will shade and you can click it to see the profile.
Our profiles are kept up to date (most of them by me) so the information will be current. For the angelfish the common scalare is under Pterophyllum scalare and you will find lots of info. Note the suggestions on numbers and getting them all together to avoid trouble.
The tank can have sand or fine gravel, if you like catfish like corys sand would be better. Angels do not appreciate bright light, so floating plants are essential, and swords can be planted in the substrate. The pygmy chain sword is a good substrate cover. Lots of wood, whether chunks of driftwood or branches. Minimal filtration/water flow, so a canister rated to the tank size is sufficient.
Hope this helps.
