British, I didn't try to pair up the fish. I had a 20g and I adopted 4 angelfish (long story). One of the angelfish died a couple of days after I adopted them, but the other 3 lived. They were kind of small when I got them, maybe quarter-sized. I kept the 3 angelfish and eventually 2 of them paired up (I had them for about 10 months before they paired up). I had always wanted to upgrade to a larger tank, so that was my opportunity to do so. The two paired angelfish became VERY VERY aggressive with the 3rd one. I got the 75g up and cycled, then I transfered them in. They've been in the new tank for 3 weeks now. The spawning pair were always aggressive towards the 3rd one, even after I put them into the larger tank and even when they weren't spawing. I ended up buying 3 more angelfish from a breeder near me because I heard it may slow down the aggression. So now the 3rd angelfish paired w/ one of the new angelfish. Now I have 2 pairs of fish that are just vicious.
