Depends on how mean your angels are.

True. Would 2 female angels be aggressive to each other or fish?

They prefer slower currents. They aren't the best swimmers.

Just that Angels are nearly impossible to sex until they are ready to breed, and even then it's a really slight difference in the tubes, so unless you buy them from a breeder that knows for a fact that they are females, you'll want to be really careful with what you buy if you want 2 females.
Also, that when you buy the adults, you'll want to make sure they were housed with fish other than other angels just to make sure they won't be aggressive towards others. Growing up alone and/or with just a male/other angels can cause problems with aggression. Think of socializing a dog, if you haven't socialized them young, it can become aggressive towards other dogs when it grows up. Same with angels having the possibility of being aggressive towards other fish.

Not trying to talk you out of them, I love my angels, but I bought them all at dime size and watched them grow with my other fish in community tanks and haven't had issues with them because of this.

Are they sensitive to medications? Hard or soft water? Do they die easily?

It's hard to sex them. The only way is their breeding tubes.

They aren't sensitive to medication. They like soft acidic water.

I got mine from a local breeder/mom and pop store. They breed 99% of the time wild caught fish in the back and sell up front. My angel I'm pretty sure is a WC strain.
