Minimum size QT tank for 3 angels

I have 3 around hand sized angels. I want to temporarily house them while I rescape (hopefully for a 4-5 days). Would a 15g high tank work?

Dry start method on epipthytes

Has anyone out there tried to grow anubias, java fern, bolbitus, hygrophila pinnatifida, or even mosses onto rocks using the dry start method? Would there be any benifit from doing this?

I've kept CPO's with ammanos and ramshorns no problem. If you provide some floating plants of tall driftwood the ammanos will most likely occupy the top while the CPO's stay low.
