"Centerpiece" fish for 46-gal with schooling fish

I'd love to have two schools and one large fish to keep things interesting.

What's a larger fish that will do OK in a 46-gallon with, say, a dozen rasboras and a dozen tetras? As well as snails and shrimp? Are angelfish OK? Gouramis?

The tank has just begun cycling, and I need to plant it before I'll slowly start adding fish... I've got plenty of time to decide. :)

5.5 - Xerxes. Divided 20L - Henrietta & many snails.

I think angels would do fine depending on the type of tetras. They may become food if they are too small like neons.
