They may pair off as juveniles but usually at sexual maturity which is 8-12mths of age.
I have proven this myself with pic included
Different angels can breed together, that's how we get such variety.
I'm playing the waiting game with 5 juveniles myself. I feed them 3 times a day. High quality flake and blood worm every second day with water changes every 2nd day. They grow fastest that way I've found for me.
Best of luck! Ask anymore questions and I'll try answer them best I can

One thing to note is you are likely to have aggression issues when they start to get breeding age, especially in a tank that size.

3-4 inches (just the body, not including tail) is breeding size.

Thanks guys. I'll star with the bloodworms and 2nd WC. I'm excited. With the aggression, that was the first thing I worried about. I'm gonna move the rest of the fish once I get a good pair. They seam to be at the perfect size to start p#iring off thanks again!!

Mine don't usually start to pair off till their bodies are about the width of a tennis ball or soda can, give or take, or close to a year old.

Lol. It is good pic. I put it up to show the juveniles arnt scared to give it a go. My larger male won her over in the end of course. I had to remove the juvenile as he wouldn't give up and let my pair spawn. Hahahaha
