Often the effects of poor aquarium management don't manifest themselves in the fish for months or even years. Internal organ damage to a fish, how can most of us know? But we accept the advice of those who do, and treat our fish accordingly. This individual and others like him will say their fish are fine, this works, blah, blah...then a few months from now the fish will die, but this person will not understand that it died as a direct result of poor care, and had the fish been in a suitably-sized aquarium with a proper environment and water parameters it would have lived much longer. We can only slog on.

Good choice, Angels grow to 10-11" and need a min set up of a 55g to have proper room to still swim with their size.

Definitely a good choice. My three were so aggressive one died as a direct result of a fight.

This would be a great starting point in a properly stocked aquarium. However, do not be fooled to believe that this would in any way allow you to keep fish which grow to large for your environment.
