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.
