I believe I responded to this in post #6. And i would introduce the angelfish last, after the other fish were settled for a few weeks. And make sure all the angels go in together as a group, for the reason noted in the profile.

will add them last, but thinking, because 1 of my angels picks on the other and its like half the size of the other, was thinking of putting the smaller one in first along with everything else ill be adding (when i decide) so he has a bit of time to grow by himself and then add the othwr 3 angels in a week or so, good idea?

Generally speaking, the "linear" tetra are not good with angels who see them as food. Neons, cardinals, black neons, rummys, glowlights...these are linear. By contrast, better tankmates are the disk-shaped tetra like Rosy, Roberts, the Phantoms, etc. A few will fin nip so these have to be avoided, but the others such as those mentioned are usually OK.

The size of the angels can affect this; mature angels in their tank will own the tank, and new fish are much more likely to be targeted, esp as newly acquired fish are almost always juvenile and thus smaller.

We have fish profiles here, with info on all this included.
