I would recamend getting a bigger tank(at least 30g) to put angels in because they like tall tanks and get up to 6 inches and altums get even bigger

Just so you know, barbs, danios, and tetras need to be kept in shoals of 6 or more, and Cories in groups of 3+.  So don't just get 1 or 2 of each...they will feel very scared and lonely.

I know how you feel...exact same situation...my Otos needed a bigger, planted tank, so having no money whatsoever I asked for it for my bday and got it.  Could you do that, ask for a bigger tank for your bday or Christmas?  I also volunteered to do chores around the house for money like I do in the summertime.  Oh yeah, and I have a job walking the neighbor's dog.  I'm sure you'll find a way to make it work.

lol, this isn't an angelfish topic anymore!
My favorite type of angelfish are all of the veil varieties. I can't decide between them. The black veils look so...elegant, the silvers are awesome too, and all the other veils are just very pretty!

Beautiful angel photos Batattack. I also have to agree with the others that your angles will need at least 30 gallons. I understand if you cannot afford it right now. However, if you could save up some money, or perhaps your parents could help you out a little bit, I don't think it would be that very expensive to get a 30 gallon tank. And this way, you could have for example 6 zebra danios - they do best when kept in groups/shoals. Or you could have 6 of some other shoaling fish. And most importantly, in a 30 gallon tank, you'd have enough space for 2 angels and at least 6 smaller fish.

All fish may survive in your 10 gallon tank - but if you want them to be well, you'll have to do frequent water changes. Angels will feel restricted in a small tank. They need much more space to be happy. So I'd encourage you - if you could afford - to get a larger tank. It will be better for all of your fish.

To answer your question, I love all types of angels. They're all beautiful to me. I also have a pair of angels: one is blue blushing and the other is a gold veiltail (which I think is also a pearly variety).

KoI and black lace angels are my favorite. Angels really do need tanks taller than the ten gallon. they can be stunted and damage their fins in such a small tank. Sorry
Oh and...
