The "killer" in that tank really is the Angels needing 80F; so that's what I'd set the tank for and then ideally add Bronze Cory's. While the others will not drop dead on the spot over 80F its a permanent stress for them and that leads to shortened life's which is not good nor for them nor for you.

Side note that pop out on me: Do you have any fin nipping issues from the Black skirts?

My best guess on his size would be a Schultz's cory. I don't have a problem with the black skirts although I do know they CAN fin nip. I've only ever seen them go after each other a bit here and there, but never any other fish. The Angels always have flawless fins. I am planning on increasing the number to 5-6 on the black skirts. Think that's a good idea?

Pers was this my tank and it ain't...I'd trade or re-house the 2 Swordtails and up the Black Skirts to anything from 6-8. Often with these wanna be fin nippers if you up the number of them it subsides.

Sounds good. The swordtails I was just keeping "until their time came" then wasn't planning on replacing them. I'd like to keep the black skirts becaue they seem to do well in my tank. I have no problem getting 3-5 more. Also thinking of maybe getting another school of tetras. Something with color in them. I would love 1 more Angel, but I feel 4 would be pushing it in a 55g.

Upping the Black Skirts agreed.
But with everything else you got going in this tank already I'd not add another school (being 6-8 add fish) to this tank; specially because you wanna add Cory's (also bio-load there) and I'd find that much better as they'll live mainly on the tank's bottom; another school or Tetra would house in the same area then your existing fish and that'll make it crowed.

Yeah, I'd rather try to get a school of bronze cories then another school of tetras if I had to choose. Pete (my fiance) wants to BN pleco, but I told him we proably can't fit it.

I wouldn't add a pleco...not with the upside down cats there already.
Just tell you fiance the pleco is NO PROBLEM as soon as you can set up a 2nd 55g in the house

LOL, he probably wouldn't mind but would want one big enough to house the Silver Dollars. Now instead of 55g we're talking 90+. I don't care much for SD's anyway.
