new to angels

Hello, am new to forum and trying to raise angelfish. Have a 20 gallon and 10 gallon tanks. Need to know if I can run an algae eater with the angels or if they would clean any eggs out that might be spawned. Info appreciated.

Welcome, a 20h would be the bare minimum for a breeding angel pair. I wouldn't add any tankmates or keep them in there long term, either.
As a long term home I'd look at a 29+ for one pair. The fry will need a growout tank also, 20g is good for a few weeks but large spawns will need more tankspace. A good breeding pair will have fry every week to two weeks so plan accordingly. Good luck, if you have any questions just let me know.

to AA!

I agree with jeta, they should be in a 29 gallon if you are planning to keep them long term. A single one would be fine in a 29 gallon as well.

IMO if you were planning to put some in a ten gallon I will definitely say no.
