You cannot have 2 angels in the same tank, they will fight. especially in a 20g tank. You have way too many fish listed. It's not just the amount of fish it's the size of them and swim room.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

To be honest, in my opinion, nope. I wouldn't put even a pygmy angel in a 20g.

20g's are good for clowns and gobies and blennies and firefish.

You can have 4-5 small fish if you stock right. But no tangs or angels or butterflys or anything like that.

The issue will be you probably have a 24" long tank. Each clown is gonna get to 2.5 inches or more. Right there you have five inches of fish swimming around in a 2 foot space. Add an angel at maybe 5 more inches and theres just no room for them. The angel will also nip corals most likely.

If you must have one then it's better. But not by a whole lot lol.

Do your angel, and your clowns and then pick a nice bottom dweller like a goby. Maybe a goby and shrimp pair. Then you can add other shrimp and inverts too.

That stocking could work if you do your rock scaping nicely. Arrange the rocks so there is still a lot of swimming room.
