I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Cichlids are a possibility, and the depth of a corner tank would help with making some interesting rock work. Stocking ideas are best left to someone with more cichlid experience but I think a corner tank would work out great for them., critical failure on my part to read past the first page.

Something I'd caution against is Serpaes with an angel. I'm the first guy to stand up for serpaes and RTBS, both fish that in my opinion have a bad reputation due to poor planning on their keeper's part, but serpaes are nippy. While a nice big school like you've got planned will help to keep them calm I'd still be worried that an angel's fins might prove irressitable.

You have about 34" of fish in your tank with this selection if your Corys only grow to 2" max. Some get to be 3" or 3 1/2 depending on type. You need to research what type you want to get. I like going by the 1" per gallon rule . You have about 10" worth of fish if you go by this rule.
The inch per gallon rule is horribly flawed. In this case especially with one larger fish and 7 fish that are not of the more common fish shape.

The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.
