Ok, thanks. Lol yeah he's my cat Tommy, he jumps into that tree whenever I want, he's such a sweetie

The only way I can see three working is if no two pair up. And even then, that's going to be some tight quarters, which usually increases aggression.

so just two?

Is the tank a 30 or a 29? A 30 is 36 inches long whereas a 29 is 30 inches.

If its 36 inches, then I might try to keep 2, but if it's 30 inches I would not keep any.

the measurements are 1 ft. wide, 15 inches tall and 24 inches long

That's less than 20 gallons - I would not get any angels.

Also, if the tank is too small for two angels, would it be ok to house one? Or would it get lonely?

So, how big does a tank have to be for two to four angels?
