Also, If you get just two angels you are running into most likely having problems with serious bickering, when they are in the big 125 tank and start maturing. The smart thing is to start off with a shoal, in a tank your size you could do at least five. Angels are much like discus, as far as only keeping two. Never good as it's not spreading out the cichlid aggression. One will always end up picking on the other, the bully stressing the heck out of the other one. If you end up with a mated pair of angels, that pair will attack the other angels, at that point you'd return the others and keep the pair. It's what I would do, if I was planning on keeping Angels.
Also, if it were me (and we know it's not) I wouldn't hesitate to QT five angels (quarter size) along with a baby pleco in a 20gl.
Hope work is going better for you today. Repeat after me: "I love my job, I love me job"
Hmm...I was only orig only going to get one baby black angel.
