Welcome to the site!

First what size tank is this?

Angels need to be in a group not a single fish. Goldfish are not tropical so they should not be in with guppies and angels. So we definitely need to know the size of the tank to know if you could even keep a group of angels, or a single goldfish for that matter.

Size of tank? Is it cycled? Have you tested your water? How often do you do water changes? You will need to answer these questions before anyone can really help you.

A goldfish does not belong in a tropical fishtank as they are cold water fish. You either need to rehome it or get it it's own tank which will need to be a good size considering they can get quite large.
Sounds to me like your tank is not properly cycled.
