i usually like angel in a little biger tank like a 55 gal or bigger. but thats your call. however i would be a little lury about putting the gourami and angel together in that small or tank. so if you do i would keep an eye on them. but there are ways to drive the aggresion down by helping them set territory boundaries by adding caves and retreats for them. But I understand that hard with that small of tank. But the other fish you mentioned souldn't overstock the tank. also keep an eye on the angel with the cardnals.

I was not planning on keeping the Sparkling (not dwarf) Gourami in the same tank with an angel.
This is my stocking plan. All the fish that are in there right now will be moved to another tank.
8 Cardinal tetras, 3 Coral platys, an Angel (I know this is a little controversial), and 2-3 ottos (unless I can move them into another tank). Hoping to also have some Amano shrimp to keep the algea down.
