I'm not trying to shoot you down, but Vicky is talking 20 gallons.  At a base
of 30x12, a 20-long has 360 square inches of floor.  Yours has over 600 square
inches.  This makes all the difference.
I suspect, though, that your angels are fairly young.  A tank only 12 inches
deep witn a decent substrate will not leave enough room for them to be
comfortable as they reach "Senior Status".  It can affect their health over
time.  I hope you will be saving some of the money their fry generate to get
them a tank at least 18 to 20 inches deep.
Just MHO.
