Large angels generally don't play well together in a tank unless its very large. What size are we looking at? Dwarfs would be okay, but not sure these would mix.

They are deep water fish, so you have to be careful of air bladder problems. Also don't have aggressive fish with them as they are passive and easily picked on. Super cool fish though...especially the males.

I would have to say no. I have a Lamarck that's been in my tank about 5 yrs. When I tried to add another one, even tho it was larger, the established one beat it to death. Mixing genicanthus angels (Larmarck, swallowtail, bellus, watanabei, etc) probably isn't a good idea.
