I believe this has been mentioned in your previous thread but two angels will not thrive in a 20g once they grow out. I kept a single angel in a 30g long (36x12 footprint) for a few years. After putting her in a 75g her behavior changed a lot and seems less stressed.

Just keep in mind you WILL need to upgrade later on down the road. Angels aren't the fastest growing so you have some time.

Seeing that this is the showcase section, how about some pictures?!

Unless it is a BNP or a similar, smaller, pleco then the same thing will apply. Will need an upgrade later, but are slower growing.

Yes I had a 20 gallon with and angel and a pleco in it among others and eventually had to move em to a 33 gallon and tomorrow morning I'm getting a 50 gallon long tank from a friend for my pleco who was bought at a minuscule one point five inch-ish is now twelve inches(sadly my angel passed ;( and I can't get another one unless I special order it :/ but oh well) so the moral of my little story both angels and pleco will grow grow GROW and then stop and be stressed till they get in a better tank I think the term is their growth is being stunted

For now, yes they are fine. But listen to what everyone else is telling you. They WILL eventually need a bigger tank.

no offense to the op but i know he doesnt wanna hear this right now ive had the same discussion bout my 11" pleco in my 48x12 fifty five gallon and when everyone was saying the same thing it was kinda upsetting you have said what needs to be said if he moves them good for him if he keeps them and they live for a while and are pretty good for him again
