Angelfish are cichlids as you probably know. One trait of all cichlids is their sense of territory; they own the space around them, often the tank. And for some reasons Corydoras are frequently targeted. I have a pair of Bolivian Ram in my 115g and there are some of the corys that they do not tolerate. In my 90g I have a pair of dwarf Apistogramma, and they have taken a dislike to the panda corys. They never actually engage in physical combat (I would remove the cichlids if they did) but the cichlids make their intention clear.

With angelfish, they are shoaling by nature, living in groups in the wild, and they establish a "pecking order" within the group; having 5+ angels usually means this remains within the group (except if a pair should spawn of course) and 5 or more also means no single subdominant fish is likely to be picked on. This is why it is recommended that angels be in a group in a 55g or larger tank. Your angel may change its behaviour when you have a larger aquarium, but it is just as likely it will not change. Should you consider more angels, be warned that when "new" angels are introduced to a tank with one dominant angel, the new fish frequently end up being harassed a lot and the stress can kill them. Some stores will accept fish on exchange, you might want to consider this.

can't see the pics, however you can probably switch to a diffuser if the bubbles are adding up like you say they are.

Designing my 120 setup for my bedroom... send me ideas if you have any. Tank will house Endler's.

I don't see photos either (get a blank screen from the link) but chances are it is from the filter/water movement. Probably won't harm fish directly (although the reason may, too much water flow can be a problem), but not good if live plants are in the aquarium as this indicates possible excessive gaseous exchange which can remove CO2 from the tank faster than the plants can use it.

Those are air bubbles (not eggs as got mentioned previously) but you must have quite a flow from the filter to create such a mass of bubbles. I would myself reduce the flow/filtration to avoid any bubbles. This would not be good in a planted tank, and unless you have fish that need currents, not necessary for fish either.
