angelfish tankmates.?

Setting up a 29 high densely planted tank with an Altum Angel, 6 panda cories and a pair of german ballon rams. Just wondering if anyone had any advice on what else i could add. The tank is for my wife and she really likes small schooling fish like fancy guppies and cardinal tetras.

Putting an angel and guppies together can be a risk. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. I really like lemon tetras. They are very peaceful and when cared for correctly there colors show brilliantly.

6 if you can. That always seems to be the magic number when it comes to schools.

As they mature when in a male/ female pair. I just want one male. I hope it works. They are my favorite angels.
