Need some pretty school fish for community tank

So far I've got a red tail shark and 2 marble angels in the tank. The Angels are slightly larger than a quarter and the RTS is about 2 inches.

I want to add a flashy school of fish that will get along with the others. I really like the look of Cardinal Tetras... any chance the Angels won't hunt them down? What are some other types of schooling fish I can throw in there that will thrive? Danios maybe? I want a peaceful community

I personally think rummy nose tetras look great in schools, depending on your tank sizr golden barbs are really gorgeous too.

The tank is 33 gallon. The rummy nose looks cool. But still worried about aggression from the angels.

Rummynose are one of my favorite tetras. They're great schoolers too. I've kept angels and rummies along with Harlequin Rasboras with nio issues. How big are your angels?

The Angels are small, about 1.25 inch body but seeing how they already want to eat the single anonymous live bearer fry I have in a plastic float container.... I'm not too keen on how they perceive smaller fish. The live bearer came along when the pet store scooped up the shark. The shark had no interest in snacking on the fry but the Angels want to tear it apart.

I like the rummy noses a lot, I'll see if the nearby Petsmart have them is stock.... I also like the looks of the golden barbs that crazy4fish suggested.

Be careful with the angels. If they turn out to be a pair and spawn, they'll be agressive to each other and to the other fish in the tank. And since they're cichlids, they might do it anyways.

I'm keeping the PH at 7 so I hope that keeps the Angels from getting frisky in case they are opposite sexes.

I don't think that will affect it that much, especially if they were born and raised in water like that.
