new fish question?

Okay
I have a 55 gallon tank and I think I'm ready for another pair of a different breed of fish

It currently has:

5 Tiger Barbs
3 Zebra Danios
2 Black/Yellow Neon Tetra
2 Black Hi Fin Tetra
2 White Hi Fin Tetra
2 Spotted Cory
1 Opaline Gourami (4") (non agressive)
1 Dwarf Puffer
1 Common Pleco (3") (is not getting larger)
1 YoYo Loach
1 Siamese Algae Eater
1 South American Bumblebee Catfish (I never see him but once a week or so)
1 Golden Snail

What would go good with them other then other tetra?
Angels? I'd like 2 or so of them if they'd be okay with the rest.

And just so everyone knows:

I know how many fish of a breed I should have, don't lecture me

I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF ANGELS WOULD BE COMPATIBLE!

And if not, what other breeds (non tetra) would be acceptable?

The only trouble with mixing angelfish are the following which are potential fin nippers.
5 Tiger Barbs
3 Zebra Danios
2 Black Hi Fin Tetra
2 White Hi Fin Tetra
1 Opaline Gourami (4") (non agressive)- Comment: There is still a chance it will so keep a watch on this.
1 Dwarf Puffer
1 YoYo Loach (more out curiosity than aggression)

I think you are talking about black neon tetras albeit this one "2 Black/Yellow Neon Tetra" which is fine.

Here are some tetras that are compatible with angels.

Columbian Tetra (Hyphessobrycon columbianus)
Diamond Tetra(Moenkhausia pittieri)
Emperor Tetra(Nematobrycon palmeri)
Flame Tetra(Hyphessobrycon flammeus)
Garnet Tetra(Hemigrammus pulcher)
Glass Bloodfin(Prionobrama filigera)
Green Fire Tetra (Aphyocharax rathbuni)
Head-and-Tail-Light(Hemigrammus ocellifer)
January Tetra(Hemigrammus hyanuary)
Jewel Tetra(Hyphessobrycon callistus)
Kerri Tetra(Inpaichthys kerri)
Lemon Tetra(Hyphessobrycon pulchripinnis)
Penguin tetra(Thayeria boehlkei)
Red Phantom Tetra(Hyphessobrycon sweglesi)
Robert's Tetra(Hyphessobrycon robertsi)
Rosy Tetra(Hyphessobrycon bentosi)
Rummy-Nose Tetra(Hemigrammus bleheri)
Rummy-Nose Tetra(Hemigrammus rhodostomus)
Rummy-Nose Tetra(Petitella georgiae)
X-ray Tetra(Pristella maxillaris)

I do know some gouramis can get aggressive but I kept Kissing gouramis with swords, angels, platties and fancy guppies without a problem in the past. I got the gouramis when they were very small and they never bothered another fish, they did eat my ghost shrimp but so did everyhting else.

Apistos, rams and keyholes should be fine.

ha i got my gourami at about 1 inch in size, he (?) is now 3-4 inches and amazing. I raised him in a guppy/community tank so he doesn't seem to think them something to bully, so now that he's in my 55 gallon, he really just mingles with everyone else or sits in some plants. So I doubt he'll really get agressive.


I'll research those fish name you gave, thanks!
