To be honest that suggestion makes no sense to me.
    It makes sense if he's not actually planning to breed his angelfish. Not everyone with spawning angelfish wants to do all the work required to successfully keep alive the fry. A 30 gallon isn't the best size for angelfish, but if he doesn't cram a bunch of other fish in there, they could be better off than they would be in his overstocked 55s.

    Your way is definitely much better for someone intending to be a dedicated angelfish breeder. In that case I would suggest he read up a lot about it, because I don't think it's as easy as you make it sound.

    But fishkid just sounds like a boy with a lot of fish that he doesn't quite know where to put.

    Oh, I guess I shouldn't assume it's a boy. Maybe fishkid is a girl.

    This is debatable as well. Reputable breeders use a minimum of 20 gallons per pair. To be honest his suggestion of a 10 gallon makes no sense to me.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything Happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Rules: If you bend them long enough they turn into loopholes and you can walk right through them.

    To each his own. What works for one won't work for someone else. 20s are a unnecessary expense when the same outcome can be completed in a smaller tank that you can buy 2 of for the price of one 20.

    Yup to each his own and I guess your way with the 10 gallon tanks is fine if you want to run an angelfish breeding program that is equivalent to a puppy mill. Carry on and have fun.

    +1, HB 1. Sounds like angelfish hell to me. Sounds like this one's a moneykeeper, not a fishkeeper.
