in my mind there's only 1 more freeswimming fish I can have in my tank and I was wondering which is better a small angel (black veil) or a male betta( note: I don't have any territorial fish species except maybe the swordtails) when I first got the tank I got a buttload of fish from a closed petshop and got 4 veil angels. they all died in like 3 days. I'm leaning towards a betta but anyone think an angelfish would be better suited?

I got tons of tetras of different species, rainbows, and corries.

How big is your tank? If you have small tetras (like neons), when the angel gets bigger it could eat them.
Also, what type of tetras do you have? Serpae tetras are known to be fin nippers, and the betta would be a prime target.
