Stock for 90 Gal - Fish Compatibility

Hello all - longtime "lurker" here that finally registered and was hoping for some advice on stocking.

90 gallon tank running a fluval FX5 Canister; heavily planted with some round rocks and driftwood.

Tank is new-ish (2 months) but fully cycled: 0 ammonia and Nitrite and 10ppm Nitrate
Temp is 78 F

This is the current stock:
1x German Blue Ram
1x Bolivian Ram
3x Oto Cat
2x Swordtail
5x Neon Tetra
2x Denison Barb (Roseline Shark)
8x Kuhli Loach

Going back to the LFS:
5x black skirt tetras (due to just being little $hits - they nip at just about everyone on occasion)
1x Platti (Due to the temp issue ?)

Interested in adding the following; but preference to the angel:

2 Angels (Very small from my lfs)
1 Red Blood Parrot ?

Anyone have any suggestions or issues with any of the above ? Any suggestions on a totally different route ?

Any help appreciated.

IMO, wait until the tank is more mature before adding the otocinclus; they tend to do better if some algae is present to munch on. When you do add them, you'll need a larger group, 6-7 or so. They're schooling fish.
If you have your heart set on neons, I'd skip the angels; or vice-versa. When the angels mature, they may eat your neons.
Also, add at least 1 Denison's barb; they prefer groups of at least 3, and your tank should be large enough to support them.
I would also at least double the size of your neon group if you decide to keep them. A large school of neons looks incredible in a planted tank.
