I would be concerned about the angels. If they grew up with the neons they may have accepted them but add something else the size of those rasboras and they will look at them as a great food source. Those rasboras are gorgeous wee fish. I think you will find it has been renamed Celestial Pearl Danio, Danio margaritatus.
You might like the pics on Peter Cottle's site here. He is considered a world 'expert' on danios and often travels to Myanmar and similar places discovering new species.
I know several people who have kept (and bred) these fish and they love them. Pretty easy to keep and look great in a large shoal.
