Welcome to TFK!

I'm not going to comment on compatibility but numbers. Hatchet fish need more numbers than that... might be a minimum of 6 recommended but I wouldn't go with less than 8.... same with the tetras.

If I were only stocking those fish in a 50 and if the angel and others are fine together, I'd start with 12 each of the hatchets and tetras and as many shrimp. I've a 37 gallon with somewhere around 16 barbs, 10 corys, 10 cherry shrimp and a Betta.

The only issue might be how fast you stock them. All at once would be an issue so one species added a few weeks apart from the next. Perhaps the angel first but others with angelfish experience might comment more on that.
