Silver dollars need to be kept in schools of 5 minimum.
Your present tank is too small to allow that.
The problem of mixing fish with angels, particularly schooling fish, is that they and the angel will harrass each other.
If you are looking for more active fish, go with danios vs tetras or barbs, as they danios are less nippy than the others mentioned.

I believe your tank is also full. That clown Loach alone is going to need more room very shortly

I had zebra danios but they nipped the fins almost to nothing so I had to get rid of them. If I got really small barbs and got about 6 and since my angel is pretty big right now, would the barbs still go after my angel?

The clown loach has actually started to shrink in length (but seems to get fatter every so often) but is showing more brilliant colors like darker oranges and darker blacks. The people at the lfs said that it would only grow another inch or more before it is done.

The LFS is not telling you the truth. Sorry I have two Clown Loaches that are 6 & 7 inches long. Their pics are in my album. Also check out the link in this post.

I love my clowns and also bought them without knowing how big they would get they are in a 75G tank now and will need a larger one in a couple of years
