Be careful with the angelfish.

Any new fish the size of neons tetras however will be interpreted as meals for the angels when they reach adult size.
Guppies will have their tails nipped by most tetras and angels so I wouldn't recommend them.
Pictures will be needed for the fish you were describing.;) Oh, and I can't access the link in your last post.
Otocinclus cats, ancistrus plecs or corydoras are good choices among the catfish. If you want other bottom dwellers, Botia kubotai, kuhli loaches and true Siamese Algae Eaters are among those that will do well in your tank.
Hatchetfish are great for occupying surface levels but ensure you have a glass cover or they'll fly out of your tank.
