I think it would be okay, but pretty close to not enough. I would be concerned over those clown loaches, I don't think you have enough room for them as they grow.

What if I removed all female guppies from the fish tank and put them in another one?

If you removed all fish you still wouldn't have enough room to keep clown loaches, they get over a foot long.

Loaches

are there any other smaller loaches that would help clean gravel?

I'm not too familiar with loaches, if you're looking for a clean up crew snails, shrimps and oto cats are usually what I go for.

I agree on the clown loaches getting too big eventually - you could get pygmy loaches or I have yoyo loaches as I consider clown loaches too big for my tank setup. Kuhli loaches would be another. Or increase the school size of cories. Imo better to have larger schools of a few types rather than just a couple of each.

My yoyo loaches are about 3 to 4 inches long. Many loaches also do better in a group or display better at least. If gravel substrate it should be fine-grained and smooth on fingers as mine will bury themselves up to the eyes hunting imaginary snails. Id also recommend gravel vacs of substrate and good filter flow across substrate - this keeps the substrate free of muck / stops them picking up infections. Doesnt have to be much flow - my tank is heavily planted out now on substrate.
