Schooling fish that Angels will not eat and not nip bitters

Hello!
Would you please advice me on which schooling fish are ok with Angels and are not fin nippers?
Also, which lived plants are easy to maintain?
Thanks so much

Silver dollar fish are great fish, but they tear up plants. But I've been able to keep them in a planted tank before. I just fed them a piece lettuce every day, but it might depend on how big the school is. They do amazing with angelfish though!!

Dollar fish are beautiful, but I have a 36 gallon tank.

Silver dollars ate my plants so depends upon there character. You can put black neon tetras as they are relatively large than neon or cardinals. I had in my tank and my adult Angels never tried to eat them.

Didn't understand. I mean black neon tetras work and they are not fin nippers as well and angels won't go after them to eat them.

Thanks so much! I'll chek on the Rasboras. I'll also check on the rummy nose.

Just get them good size. Any small, silvery, mid to upper level fish that is neon size will be possibly food no matter how big it gets later ime.
