That being said, these tw obreeds of loaches DO punch holes in my Amazon Swords which drives me INSANE. I'm not sure if yoyo loaches will do the same, but wanted to warn you nonetheless.
LOL, very funny Lisa. What I wouldn't give to have an extra foot of space!
I vote for loaches. I have four different species and I love them all. Unlike Lisa, my Burmese and Dwarf Chain loaches leave my swords untouched. But, my yoyos and clowns punch holes in all my swords, or any broad leaved plant.
I keep yoyos with my Discus and have absolutely no problem with that combo. Not sure how like/unlike Angelfish versus Discus but Discus are sedate slow cruisers and my yoyos never bother them at all.
Were it me, I'd have no problem making a decision to keep Angels and Yoyos together. Also, I do not have one snail in any of my tanks where loaches are. They snap them up, suck them out and then play soccer with the empty shells.
