That has always been my personal experience with Angels as well...

Had some sort of outbreak yesterday while I was working a 12 hour shift. Up early now and ready to find the culprit. I'm thinking that some of the fish were over-stressed because last week my mom had decided to throw in two guppies without talking to me about it. That, and a combination of minute traces of Ammonia probably did it. Lost one guppy (hate them anyways), nearly all my tetras (might be one or two of them left) and my swordtail.

Sorry to hear that; I have kept the kinds of tropicals you mentioned (swords, gupps, tetras) in the past. Why do you hate the guppies so much, though?

I don't hate hate them, I really just don't like them in my tank. Although the one that's left, me and my sister joke that it acts like our mom, haha.
Sister's returning the gourami today, still under the 7 day gaurantee. Don't know if she'll get another dwarf gourami or any fish of equal value.

Whatever you do, try not to keep Angels with Gouramis; from my past experience, the Gouramis are far too aggressive (although there are reports of wildly aggressive Angels out there as well -- they are Chichlids/Discus, after all! -- although I have never experienced one) to mix with the Angels, and many will chase the Angels to death, nipping at their fins and barbs until they are left as just floating torsos in the water...I have witnessed that first-hand.
