20 Guppies 7x Male 13x Feamale
3x Angel Fish
3x Dwarf Gourmies

Trying to decide on what Pleco to get thinking about maybe getting 2x Mega Clown Plecos to help controle algea, but I would really like some other ideas of cool looking Plecos that would do well in my tank, I dont want ones that get to big that will rip my plants apart.

Also trying to decide if I should get a few Loaches or a puffer fish to controle my Snail issue I am sure ill end up having. my thought is that ill have a bunch of snail shells all over my tank if i use the loaches but the puffer breaks the shell when it eats the snails so this way I wont have shells all over.

Give me your thoughts
Maybe a different tetra? The neons could be eaten. You could try to devoid this by adding the angels last with full grown tetras but it doesn't mean they won't.

Personally I like BN plecos. All up to you though

If you have a snail problem an assassin snail will get rid of all of them.

That's quite a lot of guppies...

I may do Jumbo Neon tetras? they would get big enough i would think, or maybe i could just try and get some full grown Neons from my lfs

well thats max on the guppies, I am planning on just having 9 and letting them have fry in my 10 gallon and pick out a few select ones for my tank and the rest I will be supplying to a lfs

it really depends on what pleco/snail solver i end up with on how many guppies i have. i would really like Loaches or a puffer just in general.

maybe ill get a Vampire Pleco they are really cool.

3 angelfish is a bad number.
Keep them either solo, breeding pairs, or, 4 or more.

why so many guppies? They will overrun your tank!

unless you purchase established breeding pairs from the LFS, it will be difficult to sex the angelfish.
Your best bet will be to purchase 4 angelfish (all the same size) and let them pair off on their own.

But to answer your question, it doesn't really matter what sexes the 4 angelfish are, just as long as there is more than three!

I noticed you are also interested in 3 dwarf gouramis.

Sex is important with gouramis - males can become very territorial (they are related to bettas).

You should be fine, since you have a large tank and plan to have lots of vegetation/driftwood.
I just recommend at least one female in that group -Keep the males on their toes

A puffer will destroy your community.

Get loaches they do best in groups of 4 or more. Puffers aren't community fish.
