Then I would say the bigger the better, did he give any limitations? But if it's just for a breeding program this can be done in bare bottom 10g tanks, I would keep them in larger tanks such as 29-40g with 10-15 fish until they start to pair off then transger them into their own set up. Bare bottom really is the way to go for breeder purposes. Run the tanks with simple sponge filters run off a air pump for simplicity.

How many tanks is he looking to give you?

I am a former commercial Angelfish breeder and can give you a simple step by step program for breeding these fish. It does require multiple tanks for the fry and larger tanks for growing out the fry. If you have the space, you can, using my method, bury the store in fish if you want. LOL ( I am currently mentoring a fellow AAer who is breeding Angels who can verify this ) FYI: My last hatchery was producing 10,000 baby Angels per month

Fell free to PM me if you'd like the plan
