I'm still kinda new to this, but have found this a great resource to get started:

Even adult guppies might get eaten. What sort of loaches are they? How big of a tank is this?

tank is 5ftx2ft x2ft or there abouts going to go measure it later on
but its bigger than my current tank :-D

looking at pics online it looks like they are yo yo loaches

was told there are sword tails in there but couldnt see them when i looked :-?

and then theres like 70+ guppies ill give some to my sister

Well, the loaches will want to be in a group. In a tank of that size you could easily have 6+ of them.

Other than the compatibility issues between the angels and the guppies, I don't see any glaring flaws with this setup.

Be sure to post pictures when you've got everything all set up!
