29 Gallon stocking

I currently have 3 mollies in a 10 gallon, Iím going to move them to a 29 gallon tall tank. Can I keep 1 angelfish with the 3 mollies in the 29 gallon?

From a bioload persective, yes its fine to keep 3 mollys and 1 angelfish in a 29g tank.

Keeping a single angelfish? A pair would be better. Again from a bioload persective thats ok too.

Do you have your 29g yet? Is it cycled?

I would not put a pair of angels in a community 29. I had one large male angel in a 29 and i eventually had to let him go just because he was too big for the tank. Can it be done yes; but a 29 is not a lot of room esp if it has moderately planting. This is the 29 for which i feel is too small for a large male angel (btw the angel was a temporary rehome from my 120 but since the female would never let him back into the 120 and the 29 was too small for a full time home....). A smaller female would probably be ok in a 29 but in all honestly i would recommend a pair of borelli apistogramma over an angel (completely different fish but i think you would be happy with the borelli).
