As it mentions in our profile, tankmates for angels (and by the way you can do 4, 5 or 6 angels in a 4-foot 55g, but remember that one or more pairs will almost certainly form, and this can get tricky) should be quieter shoaling fish. For this reason, danio and barbs are not recommended. Medium/larger Rasbora work, as do some of the tetra. Avoid linear fish as these can easily be eaten when the angels are mature. The rounded disk-shaped tetra like the Rosy Tetra
, Roberts Tetra
, and some others in the Hyphessobrycon genus tend to work well. Just avoid those that fin nip. Many of these are in our profiles.
Any of the corys are fine, in largish groups of say 9-12, which can be all one species, or more than one with minimum 3 of a species if you can. Some of the corys chum around within the species more than others, so it is good to give them at least a trio of their own.
