Hi! I had ordered a 50 gallon rectangle tank and planned on adding 4 angels and maybe one catfish however, the tank was damaged in shipping so I am back on the search for a tank. I like the modern look of the rimless/frameless cubes and have looked into the 60 gallon Marineland cube (dimensions 24x24x24). Is this too short in length for angelfish? Especially 4 if them? It holds more water overall but is shorter in length than the rectangle/long aquariums. Would this work for 4 angels?

Too short for Angels. You can do a breeding pair in a 24” tank, but definitely not 4.

Thank you! Would a 93 gallon 30x30x30 cube be better for four?

If I did a pair of angels in the 24x24x24 cube, could anything else live with them?

Fish do much better with additional horizontal space, rather than increases in volume. You'd be better off with a plain old 55 gallon to be honest.
