Question Should I get some angelfish?

So, I need something to occupy my 5 gallon tank, and I was thinking angelfish. Would 3 be good for a 5 gallon? And if it is, I need some ideas for fish. Would other semi-aggresive species work? if anyone has any ideas, just letme know. thanks guys.

Definitely a big no on the angel fish. They get far to large for a 5g. For 5 gallons you're looking at a single betta, shrimp and snails or a small school of nano fish.

Agree, no Angels fish for a 5 G tank.
I would suggest you to make a shrimp tank, with maybe 5 micro rasboras....

I think a 5 gallon is a perfect home for a single betta, and they can be aggressive.

I have two 5 gallon planted tanks, each has a single betta and is planted. I love these little tanks.

I agree a 5 gallon is no place for an angel. A planted Betta or shrimp tank would be really cool.
