Aggressive swordtail??

I recently got 2 male swordtails, and put them in my 55 gallon tank. There's a bala, a rainbow, 3 gouramis, 3 tetras, 2 danios, and 2 angel fish. The sword tails do not fight with each other at all, or any of the other fish, except the angels. They've been in the tank together for a few days and I've noticed that they started attacking one of the angels today. He was chasing it and nipping at it. Anytime I see him attacking, I always tap the tank so he gets scared and swims away. I know that's not the best thing to do, but I don't know what else, I don't want him to kill my angels fish. Any ideas??

What is worth more to you Angels or a swordtail? Sometimes a decision has to be made.
