Wife wants more calmer and not aggressive types. Any Thoughts?
I would not recommend angels in a 30g, unless it is a brteeding pair, but that I suspect is not what you are after. I agree with returning the Tigers and shark, neither fish is really suited to a 30 except alone; a group of 8-10 Tigers with one shark in a 30g is a fine display, but that's it. The Tiger's natural aggression is sometimes limited with a larger group, as it notes in our profile of this fish.
Before suggesting fish, it would help to know the sort of display you'd like. In a 30g you have some nice options. A tank of all smallish fish means more of them so lots of colour and activity. Or a tank with a pair of something not too large, such as one of the common gourami (only as a pair), or a dwarf cichlid; with some shoaling fish that are compatible. Water parameters affect all this too, so that's something else we need to know (hardness and pH out of the tap).
