25 gallon tank

I'm interested in your guys thoughts. I have an established octagon 25 gallon tank. It's about 40" tall. I have 2 (body size) angel fish in it now I wanted to add some more my idea was to add 5 or 6 hatchets and 3 cories..over stocking or would be cool. I do weekly w/cs and tank is healthy?

Those angels alone need more than 25 gallons. Id only keep angels in a 25 for quarantine, there just isnt enough water. However big they are now, they are going to out grow that tank in a matter of months. So in my opinion adding any fish isnt a good idea.

So what's the ideal for those two little angels? The 2 of them in a 50 gallon tank alone?

I'd say a minimum of 29 gallons for a pair, but plenty of folks manage to breed angels just fine in 20 high tanks. I wouldn't put angelfish in this tank, but not because of the number of gallons. I'd opt for another tank simply because a tall and narrow tank affords them less horizontal swimming space than a longer (rectangular) tank.

If its 40" tall, and plenty deep, it should be fine.
