    Welcome to fishlore!
    The tank is too small for angels and mollies.
    What type of fish do you have in there?

    Welcome to Fishlore! Agreed, you need at least 30 gallons for mollies and a 40 Breeder for angelfish.

    Welcome to Fish Lore!!!! Good to have you here! :)

    Yes, it's best if you can get at least a 30g for mollies (even though I'm planning on getting a balloon molly for my 20g; I'm quite the hypocrite ;) ) and a 40g (I suppose) for angels. The platies would be fine though. :)

    Are you planning to upgrade?

    Balloon mollies are smaller, they'd be fine in a 20..... but I don't encourage getting them because they are bred to have a deformed spine. It shortens their lifespan.
    What? lol
