    Common plecs get very large around 18" so you're going to need a much bigger tank for him, the angels also need bigger tanks, if your profile is up to date then 64 litres/16 gallons is not big enough for adult angels 30 gallons would be better for a pair
    The plec is probably getting aggressive as there isn't enough space for him.

    That isn't a common plec it looks like a panda garra, they're best kept in groups but you wouldn't have room for more fish
