How about a couple of bristle-nose plec's at adult size around 4"
There's a whole lot of similar and smaller fish that could be contenders, like otto's or pit-bull plec's. I once had a golden algae eater that I reckon even 'killer' would think twice ! Don't rule out siamese flying fox, they too are an active bottom dweller that are interesting.
Funny you should mention isolation to 'teach' your angel some manners, I have a golden gourami who thought he was IT and terrorised the other inhabitants, 3hrs in isolation and adjustment of the plants & decor, when he re-joined it was like I had traded him in for his peaceful brother !!

I agree with the bristlenose, but as a clean up crew, have you checked out orange laser cories?

Or them
I don't know how shrimps might fare among your more adult sized fish, but I find them entertaining too. Minimal bio-load, so a small army of them (unless they are likely to become live food for your current stock).

Thanks AquaOne and HomeDog98. Looks like Coreys are out, my little darling no like. No local Bristlenose in our vicinity but did find some Clown plecos so we grabbed a couple of 1.5 inchers this morning at the lfs. Killer has been stalking his new prey. A local fish club member has BN fry .5" we'll keep in touch and see what they turn out like or go to the bid city, Detroit or Toronto, and see what we can find in the fancy BN plecos.

Bad news, we had a 42 hr power failure while we were away on vacation and all are dead. Time to startover..... 4 bristlenose Albino plecos and the rest to be decided. Anyone have experience with pigeon blood discus or other suggestions, looking for large colorful freshwater fish!

Glad your here, that was the most interesting read ive had in a long time..sorry about your fish but starting over is always kinda cool..(I think half the reason I love this hobby is that it satisfies my instinctive need to build things and as long as I'm plinking around in my tank the truck is safe...)
