Are you unable to keep them alive because the angels keep harrassing/eating them or they died because of other reasons?

I have not sent the angels harass them, they just don't last in my tank, even though all the other fish are healthy

The angelfish and bolivian rams are temp incompatible. I recommend rehoming either the angelfish or bolivian ram. Also, what type of cory? Knowing the type of cory will let me know which top-mid schooler works with the temperature of your stock.

Wow really, never heard that they can't be together... I have albino corydoras.

I'd put the temp at about 78-79F. Bolivians and angels will be fine there IMO. That narrows the choices for a top of the tank schooler. Most tetras are mid tank and do not appreciate temps that high. Sorry I wasn't much help.

Bolivians should be kept at cooler than 78-79, but I think angels and bolivians will be fine together at say, 76 Fahrenheit.
