Why so hung up on the size issue?
As said, the fish in the store are there temporarily until sold. It is not a long term thing. 27L is about 7g and IMO
is fine for one Betta and the rasboras as long as you don't add any more. More fish = more waste = water conditions going down hill quickly. The swimming space of the fish also needs to be taken into consideration.
FYI a full grown angel can top almost 30cm high. The ones you see in the stores are only babies and will grow quicker than you think.
