suddenly today, the angels have taken custody of one portion of the tank. any other fish trying to swim to that half is being attacked by one of the angels (the other one is pretty docile, but is sticking to the 'angel' half of the tank)
do you think they could be spawning or something? if so what do I do?!?!?!

Anyways, it's possible they are spawning ... you would see eggs on a leaf or other flat surface. They are obvious, there should be 100+ of them.
However, none of those fish should be kept together. Goldfish need cool water, while Angels need rather warm water. By Silver Shark I assume you mean Bala Shark? They are a schooling fish and should be no fewer than 5 fish, plus they are very active which isn't good for Angels. They also can get up to 14 to 16 inches in length, each, and should not be in anything less than a 6 foot tank (an 8 foot tank suites them much better).
