Angelfish

Can I put a full grown angelfish in a ten gallon tank?

A "FULLY grown" Angel should not be in 10 gals of water. The actual size of the fish will determine what size tank it needs. With today's customized tanks, the gallonage is not really as important as the shape. However, a single fully grown Angel should be in at least 20 gals of water with good filtration or it will pollute that water rather quickly. Obviously, the larger the water volume, the better.

Hope this helps

Yep, I agree with Andy. A 20g high would be the minimum. Full grown angelfish are fairly tall. A 16" tall tank is the minimum I would recommend.

Oh, I have him in a 29 gallon with 6 mollies and a filter for a 40 gallon. I was going to move the mollies into a 45 gallon and the angelfish into a 10 gallon, but I guess that's not happening. I'll just leave him in the 29 gallon and move the mollies.

Good plan.
