You didn't mention your kH and GH, but it doesn't matter.  You should be
able to raise and breed angels just fine in your water.  My pH is 8.1
(lowered to 7.4 by CO2), GH 18 (329 mg/L), kH 8.4 (150 mg/L), which is
moderately hard, but I bred and raised angels just fine.  Wild angels live
in soft, acidic water, but commercially raised angels are used to much
harder water.
