Can I keep him with angels?
Yes. I would read up on this fishes profile. These fish are very docile unless a pair is formed and there is a spawn. If this happens both parents become very aggressive.

I would look at on-line pictures of males and females. This will help you identify the sex. I believe from your picture this is a male. The 2 sexes look pretty close. Females body are shorter/stubbier . Males will become larger. Females develop a bright reddish orange belly while breeding. Don't get confused they both have a reddish belly normally...

Charlest that is wrong that is a male. Kribs are one fish that the female is more brightly colored then the male. Attached is a pic of a female for reference. I have a pair of these in my 75Gal with Discus and they get along with everything.

I'm not sure if this photo is accurate. I put the fish in an hour ago. I would assume it is still stressed out and the full colors aren't shown yet.
Females are also a bit stubbier, meaning; from head to tail more compact looking than the longer male counter part. You have a male. I used to breed these for feeders.

You can also tell cause he has larger finnage and he is more elongated then a female would be i am 100% sure your fish is a male no way it could be a female

You need a picture of the dorsal fin erect. I've had males with as pretty a pink/violet belly as any female. It's all in the dorsal. Males will come almost to a point, and be more elongated and females are shorter and rounded off.
