No. You will certainly want to avoid serpae tetras, black skirt tetras and red-eye tetras which are all notorious fin nippers. That is down to luck on the contrary.

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.

I doubt that you will ever find 'true' rummynoses Hemigrammus rhodostomus what you will most certainly find is the firehead tetra Hemigrammus bleheri and if you are lucky the 'false' rummynose tetra Petitella georgiae

all three are not know for fin nipping and I've kept fireheads and false rummys with angels with no problems whatsoever.
