blackwater tank stocking ideas

I have a freshly cycled 60 gallon that I'm thinking about turning into a south american blackwater biome tank. It wont be a perfect representation of the biome of course but that is the general theme I have been wanting to try. I want some angels and I have 2 juvenile bn plecos who ill be putting in the tank. Just looking for stocking ideas and any other input

I was thinking about angels and something else for more variety in the tank. Just like 4 angels and my 2 bn could be nice though.

Meant to say remember angels are semi aggressive.

Discus have scared me away because of the price and water changes. If I wanted to go through all that I'd much rather have altum angels.

Alright, but do keep in mind altums are more sensitive than their scalare cousins. Also, is it tall? I've read they can get up to a foot tall!
