What kind of fish good for 55 gallon?

Hi! i currently have 6 red bellied piranahs in my 55 gallon tank, but im giving them away to a friend of mine with a 120 gallon. I cannot keep the water clean with all these in a 55 gallon, and i like more colorful type fish.
So once these are gone, i have a 55 gallon that i am open on idea's about. Im thinking about maybe getting 4 angels in there. What kind of fish do you think could be good in a 55 gallon? I like more than one, so fish like oscars arent really on the list. I have a heater for the tank by the way, and 2 powerful filters that are pumping about 90 gallons. Any suggestions would be great!

I would say harlequin rasboras and some tetras will fit nicely. Avoid neons if you really wish to keep angels.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I'd go with a variety of community fish if possible.

If I had another 55, I'd think about setting it up for skunk loaches. However, since you want colorful, that's probably not for you. Congo Tetras would go nicely with Angelfish.
