You should finish off the school of black skirt tetras. They're much happier in groups. A group of 6 or more would be great.

I think the tank would be a bit crowded with the parrots in it. There also might be agression issues with the angels? Not sure. Maybe somebody else could help there.

Which parrot cichlid are you talking about? Jellybean, true parrot cichlid or blood parrot? None of them will make a good community fish. Blood parrots are very unpredictable and will attack everyone when you least expect it. Furthermore, blood parrots can reach 8-10 inches so the 55g will look really cramped.

thanks for the info. so if i get parrot chiclids they will attack my other fish?
and if i get ghost shrimp will they get eaten by the other fish?
i think this is the kind i want. So if i get 2 will they do well with my angel fish? (is the picture showing?)

Parrot fish can get to a pretty good size. I think with the four angels and the other fish you're pretty much at capacity except, like Falina suggested, you should add a few more black skirts.
