no, a 10g is not big enough for an angel. They get very large.

Hi there,
Nope, absolutely not.
Angelfish actually grow to be 8-10 inches from the nose to
base of the tail (not including the tail fin), and with fins,
from top to bottom can be up to 18 inches tall.
The smallest tank for a pair of angelfish is a 25 gallon tall
tank, or a tank that measures 24 inches long x 12 wide x 20 tall.
They are peaceful fish, not aggressive, but will eat small
fish like neons when they get large.

Angelfish should ot be kept alone they are a schooling fish and are most happy and healthy when kept in groups and no a 10 gallon is not big enough I have 2 angels in a 29 gallon with a few amazon plants
