I had the privilege of owning a pair of Angel Fish. They are pretty hardy and friendly fish. They were tidy tank mates and didn't cause the upheaval or the mess some of the other critters did.
Being a tropical fish they do have specific temperature requirements as well dietary requirements and do well if given blood worm at-least once a week.
They are pretty friendly and get along with most tank mates. Always check space requirements and temperament of fish before adding new fish, some are territorial and become very aggressive during breeding.
The fondest/saddest moment i have with my angels was when the female got swim bladder and the male actually kept nudging her forcing her to stay upright and keep moving. We took her out and put her in a shallow tank and luckily she made a full recovery.
No one can ever tell me that fish don't have feelings.
I would highly recommend them as a beautiful addition to your aquarium.
