A 40 gallon tall would be more ideal than a 40 gallon breeder, as angels are tall fish, but any 40 gallon is fine for angels.
There are too many compatible fish to list. Angels often have issues with gouramis as they share a similar space in the tank so try to avoid those. You can add bottom dwelling dwarf cichlids like kribensis, german blue, or bolivian rams, apistogramma, checkerboard cichlids, laetacara species, etc.
You can also add larger tetras or barbs. Avoid fish that fit in the angel's mouth. They eat small fish and invertebrates in the wild. Same goes for tiny shrimp.
