In nature, angelfish are native to the Amazon River in South America. They are mostly found in tall water plants where they find shelter. They grow and live in big colonies, and their flat body allows them stay close to each other. They come out from the water plants to play, court, feed, and mate. When there is any sign of a predator, they swim back into the plants to seek refuge.
Angelfish should be housed in a tanks 20 gallons or larger. Like most freshwater aquariums, an angelfish aquarium should have plenty of plants like Vals, Sag, Swords, etc. These plants will improve the water quality by keeping it clean, preventing algae growth, add oxygen into the water, and give shelter to your fish.
Angels can live in pH levels between 6.0 and 8.5 but our angels are raised in a pH of 6.9. Here, our angels are raised outdoors, so the temperatures vary from 65 or less in the Winter to 90+ in the Summer, but most of the year they sit at about 77-80. You may want to try and reproduce nature by offering a mild fluctuation of temps in your home aquarium water to encourage breeding and of course to offer them a longer, better life. Constant high temps cause very rapid growth and early death.
Keep Angels in larger groups and certainly not as a solitary fish. If there are only a few fish, the strongest will make the others miserable and they will feel lonely. But in bigger groups they will all behave better and will live a longer healthier life.
Tankmates for angelfish should include various Tetras, Plecos, Corys, Catfish, Algae Eating Fish, Snails, and other fish that come from South America. Fish of similar size from Asia may be considered as well.
