Added an Angelfish to my 55 but he isn't the problem, my dwarf guoramI has gotten super aggressive since I added the angel, what should I do? All my guoramI does now is chase other fish around and bully them

You may want to try to re home the DG .
That is what DG do .. Not all but many from my understanding .It is from their breeding...
Most don't last 1 year before they develop DGIV and then they drop like rocks ..

I moved him to my Swordtail's tank whom got rehoused for similar reasons and they seem to be fine maybe the 2's equal aggression makes them more peaceful whereas he was the sole aggressor in my 55 and was bullying the others

Male swordtails are known to be tough guys also ..
Even properly kept in large tanks some males are just rough ..
Glad the DG is all good with the sword..The sword is fast enough to get away if he needed ..
