Most PEACEFUL tetra for Angelfish tank

I have a 65 gallon tank

4 angelfish
6 corydoras

I am looking to add a school of some sort.
What do you recommend?
I need something that forms a nice school, but won't stress the angelfish and vice versa.


I was thinking rummynose tetras?

Or

a pair of Rams

Or

gouramis

I like Bleeding Heart Tetras or Lemon Tetras. Big enough not to be a snack but peaceful. Rummynose are great also. For a larger peaceful Gourami, look at a Pearl. Some of the 3 spot types can be naughty. I would add 1 Gourami, unless you have another tank in case they fight. Gouramis can be very belligerent with each other.

a pair of rams would be fine but they tend to hang out near the bottom of the tank. if you want a school rummynose tetras would be fine i've never heard of them being nippy. there are other tetras that wouldn't nip like prestillas. i dont know if bleeding heart tetras are fin nippers or not. other than pearls i would not recommend gouramies they tend to be bullies toward similar sized fish

My rummies are the most peaceful tetra I have, other than my embers, but those wouldn't do well with angels.

I have lemon tetras and harlequin rasboras, and I would recommend the latter more than the former. The lemons are definitely the jerks of the tank. IME, most tetras can get a bit nippy under certain circumstances.

I wouldn't imagine them picking fights with angels though, most of the time.
