I have two plecos in my 60 gallon tank there both about 6 inches. I was thinking of moving one to my 55 gallon that I use for my angelfish grow out tank. The angels in there about the size of a quarter to and smaller. The plecos I have are the following photos.
The first one is a Black sail fin pleco I have had him for about 3 years.

I don't know what species this guy is.

Will they eat the angels if I put either on ein the 55 gallon?

from what i know about plecos as long as they are well fed themselves they shouldn't bother the fish...but that second one i dont know what type either...maybe try to find that out...but i dont think speices matters when it comes to well fed & not sucking on fish

Neither should be a problem in the grow out tank for the moment. Keep in mind though that both will likely become too large for your tanks. The one on the bottom looks like an albino common pleco and can get to over 2 ft long.
