Definitely not guppies. Looks like some type of tetra if bettababy is not right which she seems correct.

I would call 2 inches rare and extremely large for a white cloud. Average is 1 - 1.5 inches, and I am confident of my ID of the fish in the photos.
They're pretty easy fish to care for but prefer cooler water (68F - 76F) and they are very peaceful, so might want to watch them with all of those danios in the tank. Danios are notorious fin nippers, and white clouds would be very vulnerable to that.
White clouds will school if they have enough of their own species, and the gold white clouds will often school with standard colored white clouds, so if you want a pretty mixture of easy, peaceful fish for a small tank, they're awesome for that.
They eat tropical flake food, brine shrimp, and most other foods that are good for the smaller tropicals, but avoid live black worms. Live black worms tend to cause health issues in white clouds.

I have to run for now, but if you want/need more info on them let me know and I can come back and post more.

ya I wouldnt mind some more info about them...

what do you mean that they are schooling fish? Well what Im trying to ask is how well do they school. I have 6 of them and they dont really form a school often ( but they stay at the top of the tank though). could it be because of the danios.but the danios dont really chase them (but sometimes once in a while).

anyway thanks for help and the extra info

I wouldn't call 6 of them much of a school, especially not with danios in the tank. It could very well be the danios that serve to keep them more scattered. White clouds tend to be mid to upper level fish, but here again, the danios may have something to do with where they are choosing to hang out. There is also decor and territory to take into consideration. Where they all have to claim territory will also affect how they behave and who is dominant in the tank.

Try watching your tank from a little bit of distance after the lights go out... about 30 - 45 minutes after lights out. You'd be amazed at how much changes in the dark.
