Would suggest against the kribs, they might fight with the rts as they both inhabit the bottom, could be wrong ask Butterfly for confirmation and I would go with only one angel, my mated pair sometimes gives the other fish problems and they produce a lot of waste and having only one leaves it more open because the tank doesn't seem so big once the angel is full grown, and they produce big things of waste :-X

Ok, I was just hesitating because the angelfishes grow so huge. I'm going to research other cichlids and see if I can find good and small cichlid that'll breed easily and so that I could add more fish.

Most cichlids do best in species only tanks, the dwarf species are usually the most peaceful, one angel is ok, in fact it could be a small angel, on of my angels is really small and the other is big.

But then the small angelfish would grow big eventually

No not all angels grow the same size, mine are full grown one's maybe 3" long max and the other is close to 5" and the small one's fin span is mayble 6" max, I'l try to take a picture, not all angels get big, depends on the species too, like some have big fins and others don't.

Your tank is looking good. The red tailed shark will enjoy having the bottom to himself. As long as you have the rts I would advise against kribs and rams both as they both inhabit the bottom quite a bit and they can get aggressive with intruders and thats how they would see the rts. Without the rts you could have kribs or rams. I suggest a trio 1male/2females.
Most angels will get at least 3-4 inches across the body and two in the 29 gallon shouldn't be too many if you want them. Just some suggestions

Ok. Anyway, I'm kind of worried about my red-tailed shark. I don't think he's getting enough food. I sink flakes and algae wafers for him but the zebra danios and platies eat all the sunken flakes and the platies hog over the algae wafer. My female platy is the most aggressive fish in there. She follows the corys and when they find food, she chases them away and eats all the food. She doesn't do that with the red-tailed shark but they keep away from each other.

Hikari makes Sinking wafers and carnivore foods for bottom feeders that perhaps the platies and danios would not be after.  

I do not know much about these fish but you may have better luck with some of these foods:

The vicious fellow chases the zebra danios and corys around everywhere. He only acts aggressive during night.
