First off Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping!

Second off my best advice is: A cycle tank with clean water and the right parameters for the fish along with the right amount of Angelfish in the right size tank.

A group of 5 in a 75gallon is a good number. No issues there.
I would cut back on the bloodworms to 1-2x week at the most as they are high in protein.

I am not sure if Swordtails and Angelfish are a good combination though? So I will let others comment on that.

I moved this mini-thread out of the thread in which it was posted so it is now on its own. While the angelfish connection was there, this is really another issue from the one in the older thread.

I second Boredomb on the bloodworms, once a week is plenty, as a treat. Many prepared (dry) foods today are highly nutritious, and it is advisable to get fish on a basic diet of good prepared foods. Some would say there is not much difference between brands, others think there is a major difference. For my part, I use New Life Spectrum, Omega One and Hikari mainly. I also like to feed a variety, usually four different types alternating daily, one feeding per day and early in the day; no feeding one day per week (water change day).

Frozen foods like daphnia are excellent; worms once a week as mentioned; brine shrimp. Or any of these live, but just be careful because sometimes fish can get so attached to live foods they will ignore prepared foods, and the bulk of their nutrition will come from prepared foods.

Byron.
