Is there any fish in the tank? Do you like the cockatoo dwarf cichlid?
I love them. And what about some bleeding hart tetras?

Before suggesting fish for a tank, it would be great to know your tap water pH and hardness. You should have a test kit to tell you pH and you can find your hardness from local water quality reports.

Izzy is correct. But while we're waiting for that info, a comment on your initial idea. Angelfish should be in a group, 5-6 would be fine in a 300 liter (presumably 4 or 5 feet length) tank. The profile explains why. As for BN, make sure there is a lot of bogwood so they can establish their "homes" and territories. Males are territorial, and you'll have room in a 4-5 foot tank for more than one or two but don't overdo it.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
