You could actually try a piranha biotope! You could probably keep about 7 in an 80 gal. It would certainly be an interesting tank. A showstopper!

I can't remember if you know your water parameters. Hard or soft water? That's going to make a big difference as to what you can do. Hard water might mean an african cichlid tank (Tazman can help you with that) or even a brackish setup (I dream of an archer fish tank). Soft water could let you do an amazon biotope with huge schools of tetra or just massive schools of softwater fish. There is a lot you can do with an 80 gal tank. I'm kinda jealous.

Rainbow fish! Check out dustinsfishtanks on youtube and find a video of his 220. He has bosemoni (spelled it wrong) but you could maybe do something like Australian rainbows?

If you find out you have soft water maybe angel fish?

Aren't angels more aggressive? Or should I get two as babies, tons of plants of course, and other fish.

You'll need a school of at least 6 angels, though you could do more in that tank.
Angels are awesome, you could get each one in a different colour. :D
You can't have two only, because if it's two males they will fight. If it's a male/female, there's a chance that the male won't accept her and kill her, cichlids can be picky. A school of 6 will fan out aggression, like betta girls.
As for tank mates, some larger tetra, or maybe some quiet barbs.

Alright, no angels, no cichlids I'm guessing.
Rainbowfish are a great option, boesemani, lake kubutu, salmon red, neon. All easy enough to find at shops but a lot of people don't have them. Very peaceful, males compete but it's not violent, just a colour show. Look for dull fish. Rainbows take around 6 months- a year to get those drop dead gorgeous colors.
