Buy the angels small, the neons and cardinals big.  With luck they will
never figure out what their natural prey is.  I've had no problems. I have a
mated pair of angels in a 55 with cardinals and another mated pair in a 55
with neons.  They tend to be a bit rough on each other prior to laying egs,
but the the smaller fish just learned to keep a big plant between themselves
and the angels

Wild angels have the reputation of being rough on neons and cardinals,
