I do not recommend mixing gourami and angels; both are territorial and while things may be "fine" initially, as they mature and develop their natural instincts it likely will not remain fine.

A Red Tailed Shark is not a community fish. As noteed in our profiles, they can become very nasty. Having one in a tank means no other substrate fish (you had mentioned loaches previously), and they get large and can become aggressive to many other upper fish.

Golden Barb is not suitable with angels, as it can become a fin nipper. Also needs a larger group (8+) and is quite active which can also stress out angels.

We have fish profiles, you can see more of an explanation for the above in the profile, seconod tab from the left in the blue bar across the top takes you to the profiles.
