They're really hard to sex so it's kind of hit and miss if you just buy 2 and hope they will get along. Probably best to buy 6 or so young ones and wait for a pair to develop then rehome the rest. So ultimately I would keep no more than 2 in that size tank. I will say though, I know some people frown on keeping one angel but I have kept a single angel in a 37 gallon (similar dimensions to the OP's tank). I had originally bought 2 but one died. The one lone angel did just fine on it's own, was healthy, active, ate like a pig and she laid eggs regularly. I did ultimately move her to one of my 55 gallons (I sold the 37 gallon) and have added 3 more angels. So far no issues between them at all.
