Freshwater Angelfish

So I have an empty, cycled, 35 gallon hex with a 350 gph canister attached to an under-gravel filter. The pH is 6.5-6.8 for my water. Is this fit for freshwater angelfish? If so how many?

That would work for a breeding pair, if that is your intention. But for angelfish in general, they should be in a group (5-6) which means a 4-foot tank like a 55g is minimum. You can read more on this in the profile, click the shaded name Pterophyllum scalare.

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]
