Not 100% sure but I've been told that tetras are a-okay to add during the cycling process. I have 6 in the tank that I am cycling and they are happy as anything. Just as healthy as the Danions. One thing for sure is don't add too many fish too soon

honestly your going to need to lose the guppies, they will become food for your angels. might want to look into tetras, theres many species out there. The general rule is if a fish can fit into ones mouth then it eventually will end up there espcially with angels and most cichlids.

crazy that worked!! but each fish are different in temperament is jsut a general rule of thumb if the OP is willing to risk cannibalization then go for it if not dont.
