Angelfish are not very aggressive at all, except amongst themselves. And 5 angels is a lot for permanent stocking in a 55 gallon.
Mikaila- please see my correction above, I suggested 5 cherry barbs, not 5 angelfish.
The cherry barbs don't get too nippy as long as they are kept in an appropriately sized group (about 5 or 6 minimum).
