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.
Never to suffer would never to have been blessed.
