If you have any desire to raise a spawning, the tetras become the main enemy to the fry; they are speedy swimmers with better hunting chances.
I agree with you about the tetras. The parents can watch for other angels or a sucker fish but you can watch the tetras pick off the free swimmers one by one. also, the parents stay crazy aggressive as long as they have even one egg or fry left in the tank.
