Your tank looks nice! While the angelfish may be small now, they will eventually grow to be tall (5-8 inches). This is why I suggest moving them to a larger (taller would be better) tank. What fish do you have in the 60 gallon? Depending on what you already have in there, the 60 gallon would be a good place for the angels.

ooo very nice! I like the simplicity while also being able to cover up what looks to be the heater? Nicely done.
