I'm pretty sure that your tank is way to small for a angelfish!!!

Angelfish tank size

Your tank is only 55 liters or 14.5 gallons ?
Too small for a Molly or an Angel.

Angelfish need tall tanks. Their fins can get 12" top to bottom or more.

A 29g tank is about minimal size to grow out a nice Angel.

Mollies are very active, can hit 3" and are quite big eaters and poopers for their size. I prefer 30g for most Mollies, esp Sailfins.

So 110 Liter tank would be the size to consider for an Angel. As long as it's tall enough. 24" at least.

Sadly the Gourami needs room to grow as well. http://animal-world.com/encyclo/fres...ghtGourami.php

You are usually buying younger, juvenile fish. Please research the adult size and tank size needed before buying. It will save you a lot of time and heartbreak.

Gouramis don't usually like other Gouramis. Very territorial. Pearls are usually the most peaceful of the larger Gouramis and even they can get scrappy. Betta cousin

You're tank is too small for an angel, and a moonlight gourami. Try a dwarf gourami.
