Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

The black skirts are a schooling fish and are also known to be somewhat nippy, which could be problematic for the angel. Increasing the school size might help abate the problem but in the end if the tetras are persistent you might have to rehome them.
The otos should be just fine, but sometimes they can be so picky that the only thing they'll eat at all is algae. You can try things like algae wafers but if those don't work, you might need to use greens like spinach or even keep a rock in a bowl of water by a window and grow algae for them to eat.
The GloFish should probably be ok, but might be a little too frantic for the angel. They're also schoolers and should be in a group of at least six. If you don't want to shell out the money for more expensive GloFish, you could just add some standard zebra danios (GloFish are genetically modified zebra danios, but the fish don't know the difference and they'll school together).
