Angelfish Amounts

Hello I have two male angelfish in their own tank, and I was wondering if I should get two more males or not. One angelfish seems to be picking on the other, so would this help? If I got two females, would they constantly get picked on? Thanks.

Need tank size & such to make any sort of call on this. Good luck sexing angels without them actively spawning, wonder how you determined the two you have are males.

My tank is 20 gallons, and I found out how to tell the gender from youtube, I can't really explain how to do it. Also, I probably going to upgrade to a 40 gallon soon.

no
There should only be 1 angel in that tank. The least amount of angels I've seen in 1 tank is 2 in a 29 gallon. Angels can be quite territorial. Now, if you were to find a female, it's possible that they MAY get along together. But I'd only recommend that in a 20 gallon long, not a 20 regular or 20 high.

I recommend rehoming 1 of the guys and replacing him with a few quiet fish.

20 gallons is the minimum for a breeding pair, 2 unpaired fish in a tank that size is asking for trouble. I guess utube can teach me something I haven't learned in 10 years of keeping & breeding angels. Fully half of trying to sex angels is understanding behavior as a group, which two is not. 50% accuracy is just guessing, I can hit around 80% with a group of 6 or more provided they are approaching maturity.

Bottom line is what you should be adding to the mix is a larger tank.

So if I had space, would 4 males be better than 2 males?

Not in 40 gallons. 2 or 3 angels would be best in a 40 gallon. You should never house more than 2 males without adequate space or atleast the same number of females.

Well you didn't say anything about a tank bigger than 40 gallons. I'm just giving information based off what you gave.
