55 Gallon Angle Community

I would like to start up a 55 gallon angle fish cummunity but am unsure what other fish should go with my angles. I was also wonder how many angels you would suggest to me. Right now I was thinking...
Angles x2
Some sort of tetra(smaller) x8-10
Clown loaches x4
Peacock eel x1 (maybe)
Some sort of Cory cat x4-5ish?

Would this be a good set up? Too much or too little? Also if you have any ideas for a amazon bio type with the angles that would be great too! Thanks!

I would do 3 angels, if they pair you may have to return one, 18 rummy nosed tetras and either med sized 8 corys or some smaller loaches..clowns get huge, I'm pretty sure peacock eels will be a nono in your setup too..

Either zebras or corys, both species do much better in larger groups..I'd personally do the big troop of corys..

I'd go 5 angels, forget the tetras and do whatever with the cories and otos.
