Your observation/experience with the "shy" angelfish is indicative. Cichlids, at least the smaller species (angels, discus, dwarf cichlids), always do better with other fish in the tank, what we term dither fish. It somehow eases their insecurity and gives them the determination to be out and about.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]
