None. I suppose the Black Skirt Tetras and mature Cardinals might have a chance, but the rest especially Neons and other small ones could get eaten by mature Angel fish.

What about the larger ones they can't eat?

My rule of thumb is if it can fit in their mouth, they will eat it.
Individual Angelfish might develop murderous tendencies, but on a whole they usually don't attack fish they can't swallow.

Angels and Rams are two of the more peaceful members of the Cichlid family, but there are exceptions.

They won’t eat them but if not well fed they will nibble on the fins. If you go on vacation, use a battery powered feeder.

It was back in my youth (i.e. long long ago) that I had tropical fish,
but my experience should be just as valid today: I had a community tank,
including angelfish and neon tetras... I never saw the angels
bother the smaller fish, nor did I ever see signs of bites on fins.
The angels were very peaceable... downright angelic.
