Is go just one pair of Angels, and only 10 of each school. Plus only one or no plecos. It'll be over stocked IMO if you go that route. Also, there are some people who say that Angelfish will eat the Neons sooner or later. Although, IME, which isn't a lot, the Angels are not bothering the Neons. But my neons are full grown (got them that way) and the Angels are not quite full grown.

You might want to add the GBR's after a few months. They tend to be sensitive to water conditions.

You've got the fish covered and I agree 2 angels will work better and also if you get small angels and they grow up with small fish there are generally few if any problems down the road. I have 12 adult angels and all small fish in my 220g.

I do suggest only getting 1 Amazon Sword. They grow very large and one will take up a lot of room in a 55g. I'm sitting in front of my one 55g right now and they can be difficult to scape and give depth too because their width is only 12 or 13 inches. One large Amazon sword can take up to 1/3 of the tank. You never think they will get that big but they do. On a good note tho you can use sissors to cut outer leaves off at the base to keep the size of the Sword smaller.
