Hi, welcome to the forum

I think the angelfish would be too much with the other fish.

This link can be fun to play with.

I agree with Delapool about the angel: a 29 is a bit small for them when they hit full size, and the crowding might bring out his aggression. Also, the tetras might be tempted by his long fins. Depends on the species.

A larger school of tetras (9-11) plus a turquoise blue dwarf gourami might be something to consider.

Edit: I forgot to ask - what kind of filter do you have on the tank?
