I was looking at the rainbows. Don't really care for the body shape, honestly. Haven't seen the bloodfins yet, can't find a decent pic.

Bloodfins are cool... but at only 2" wouldn't the Angels be able to eat them? Not contradicting, just asking. The only fish I have experience with are guppies, bettas, and common goldfish.

bloodfins are silver with blood red fins ... they have the same body shape as neons just 3 times the size

There are a lot of tetras to choose from. Red phantoms, bleeding hearts and rosy tetras. There's nothing wrong with other colors.:)

True, very true. I will be happy as long as I am not excessively over-stocked.

I keep reading that rams are delicate and hard to take care of. Is it true? What do I have to do to get the water to make it appropriate for them?

Yes, they can be difficult. Make sure to match the water chemistry of your lfs' tank and your tank so it won't be difficult to allow them to adapt to your tank. You might it necessary to use RO water if your water is very hard.
