75 gallon stocking question

Hi Everyone
I have a 75 gallon tank I set up last week I upgraded from a 56 gallon using the same filters fish plants wood and substrate. I have a fluval 405 fluval 206 and aquaclear 110. Its a low tech low light tanks no co2.
Im wondering what you all would suggest for stocking?
I have in it now
3 angel (I might be adding a cpl more depending on feed back here)
5 cory
My original plan was 7 angel 12 diamond tetra and 8 cory.
Now Im think why not get some feed back from all of you before making my decision.
Thanks

I love it! I wanted cogo tetra but have heard they are not compatible with angel. I love the paradise fish as well and the funky catfish

Ummm, I have no paradise fish or catfish....you mean the bichirs and pearl goruamis or rainbow cichlids?

Also, congo tetras should totally work with the angels. Both are sturdy fish. Its not like barbs and angels, and the congo's keep to themselves when you have a nice group of them.

Your original plan for 7 angel 12 diamond tetra and 8 cories may be pushing it as far as angels go. I wouldn't do any more than 5 and you'll need to keep an eye out for aggression, particularly if they pair up. The number of diamond tetras and cory cats is fine.

I think your right so I just 2 more angel instead of 4. That will give me 5 angel. I may add a couple of ram?

Idk if congos are or not, as I've always used a hood, but, I got 5 of those rainbows (I'll grab a 6th eventually...just cause I like even numbers but that doesn't really matter).

I'm a big fan of these guys.

One of my angel died a couple of days ago. Not sure why I've had him for over 6 months he was eating the day before and all my other fish seem fine. I guess sometimes it just happens. I'm going to wait until next week just to make sure everyone else is ok then I replace him.
