I know smaller fish and Angels do not mix. I also though angels liked to be kept in groups.
What you you all think?
You said this was a 29g tank? This will not work.
Angelfish are shoaling and should be in a group of 5+ which requires a 4-foot tank minimum.
Diamond tetra maybe, but its a big maybe and not one i would attempt. This fish is better in larger groups than 6, it attains 2.5 inches, and it is active so it needs more space, at least a 3-foot tank.
Threadfin Rainbow is fine, and the rasbora; together, just add a few more of each, say 9. [By the way, the rainbow would be eaten by the angelfish anyway, so another reason not a good match.]
Substrate fish with the threadfin and rasbora could be a group of corys, or a group of the dwarf banded loach. A whiptail catfish would add interest with either.
