Any one have an Odessa/Scarlet Barb??

A while back I went to this small town catfish resturant and they had an aquarium with these amazingly colored fish, and the owner said they were serpea tetras, well I have serpea tetras and those weren't the fish in the tank! I just now discovered they were the Odessa/Scarlet barbs

I WANT

Anyways, how aggressive are the little buggers? I plan on having an angel fish-- will these guys bother the angel? I would only plan to get two or three

Its a 75gal btw

I have a friend that was spawning them....they can be somewhat nippy, but are not too bad....if your angel is fairly mature, they should not give him too much trouble.
