A standard 55 is 21" tall. That's fine for angels. Unless you have a pair form you will be fine with that stoking and could probably add another school of tetras.

For comparison, in my 55 I have: 2 female angels about 3" lips to caudal peduncle, 8 Diamond Tetras, 5 High fin black tetras, 4 Albino anaeus cories, 8 Sterbas cories, 1 trilineatus cories (last survivor of 5), 6 metae cories, A breeding pair of Ancistrus and about 4 fry about 1 1/2" long. This has 2 Emperor 400's running, gets a 30% weekly water change, and is heavily planted.

So, to what you have, I would add an algae eater of some sort - an ancistrus, a Panaque maccus (if you have driftwood), or a farlowella, and another 8 rummies.

Once had a large marbled Angelfish that took great delight in killing Tetras, young mollys, and even a young dwarf gourami. I was young and thought it amusing. The fact that rummynose or any other of the tetras may be too large to eat, may or may not prevent Angel fish from trying as it becomes larger. :(
