Do you think black skirt tetras would be fine with angelfish. I heard bad and good things happening. I have a 55 gallon tank I know angelfish will probably not mess with the black skirts but will the black skirts mess with the angelfish

If you want a group of big Tetras in an Angelfish tank, look at Bleeding Hearts or Columbians.
Although Skirt Tetras will likely coexist just fine, they tend to be more boisterous.

I personally haven’t found black skirts to be aggressive, but I haven’t tried with angels specifically.

Depends on the fish and the setup. Like said, black skirts can be maniacs like tiger barbs if there's not enough of them in a particular setup. On the other hand, some angles are big goof balls. Others more territorial / predatorial.
