Also, what kind of tetras are a good size to get with AngelFish?
Most cories stay at about 3" in size. Panda cories are among the smaller cories and only get to about 2".
As for tetras and angelfish, I wouldn't advise that. The torpedo tetras will become food for the angels unless you do the larger sized tetras such as penguins. Deep bodied tetras (Serpae are notorious for this) tend to get nippy which the angelfish don't tolerate. The penguin tetras I've noticed are somewhat nippy, but only in their school, but also are very fast at getting food. The rainbow fish are as well. Angels are pretty intelligent and know where to go to get food, so I don't think that would be too much of an issue.
You may want to just do the rams, angelfish, rainbowfish and cories. 37g isn't going to be that large if you do 3-4 angelfish and 2 ea of the rainbows and rams. I would suggest that you plant the tank fairly well. Java fern on a piece of driftwood will help soften the water for the angelfish/rams. You can also add some wood shrimp to help filter the water and help the substrate :)
