You can have soooooo much in that tank. I don't know where to even begin..... I'm better at stocking smaller tanks.

Oh wow! My dream is to have mormyrid dolphins and a tank that size would be perfect!
You have so many options it is overwhelming. I like the black red tail shark and yoyo's suggestion above, but the yoyo's would likely fin nip the Angels.
I am following to see where you go with this.

Angels should be in even number groups. I would recommend 4-6.

I am not familiar with all your fish on the list (acura, severum, chocolate, sajica) so defer to others on the combination.

I've seen at least one video about electric blue acara decimating a rummynose school one by one... I would agree with tyguy about choosing a wider-bodied schooling fish.

Diamond tetras immediately come to mind if you are looking for a larger bodied tetra but don't want to go really big (like congos or the larger rainbows). Lemon tetras would be good as well as black phantoms. Or you could do another school of rainbows (different kind like praecox maybe).

Probably could stick with the chocolate then if you wanted.
