angel fish
 
is there any angel fish i can put in my 33g with gouramis and congo tetras?

Answer is no. They need a bare minimum of 18 inches height. To add information, there are only 3 angelfish species, Pterophyllum scalare, Pterophyllum altum and Pterophyllum leopoldi. The ones we commonly have are scalares often measuring 6-8 inches in diameter excluding the fins.:wink2:

NO!!!! Angels get far too big for a 33 gallon!

Even if you had a bigger tank, the angel would bully around the gouramis.

Besides that, I doubt you have room...how many gouramis and tetras do you have? those tetras get to 3" each, and if you have a school of them (7+), that takes up a large portion of the tank...add a couple gouramis and you are already pushing the limits of your tank...
