Angels Always Territorial?

I picked up a pair of Angels this weekend for my 55 gallon tank. They are small so there is plenty of room right now. I had a questions regarding how territorial they are and the specifics of that.

Is there a certain size/age that they become more territorial? Mine seem to stay away from each other at times and swim pretty close at others. They seem content either way, never chasing each other.

Also, is there a certain size/age that Angels breed in the event that I do have a male and female?

Depends on diet, temperature etc. After about 6 - 8 months of age or so, they should start maturing. That is when they will start pairing up and getting territorial.

I should've noted their size. My Angels are about 50 cent piece sized in the body. Any guesses on the age?

They should be maturing soon. I would guess 6 months old. You may get lucky and have a peaceful set of angels that won't give you any trouble.
