Odessa barbs

I currently have a school of tiger barbs in my planted aquarium. While they are fun to watch swim around, these guys are particularly aggressive to any other fish I put in the tank. I'm thinking of going with odessa barbs instead.. Are these guys just as nippy in community tanks?

I've had Odessa barbs and they were fine with other fish (although I didn't have them with long-finned fish like angels or a betta). They're nowhere near as nippy as tiger barbs.
Oh good, I ended up moving the tiger barbs into their own tank. They were just causing a lot of problems in the community tank.
Funny thing you should say that about angels and betas. In the 75 now I have both angels and betas lol. Wondering if they would be ok in there then. Hmm..
I have 9, they are moved into the 40 gallon at the moment. The tank I want to have the odessas in I have 7 angels, a beta and some guppys being held there for the mean time. I'm mostly worried about the angels and fin nipping
