angelfish/ciclid tankmate

I have just obtain 4 ciclids that were in the same 40 gal, tank. I have had them over a week and have noticed that the two pure bright orange ones stay hidden behind the filter as every time the wander into open waterthey are serious chased by the other two ciclids (sorry I have no idea what type they are - but they seemed to get along fine). I have a 75 gal. tank with mature angelish fish in with plenty of natural rock-type hiding places. Would it be possible to put the 2 orange ciclids in with the angelfish or am I looking for problems?

Without knowing what kind of cichlids they are, it is impossible to say.

If these were purchased from a mixed African cichlid tank, they are probably Mbuna of some kind, and are definitely not compatible with angelfish if that is the case.
