Questions about my tank

Ok so this I guess is my thread. I'd like to get my daughter some fish( her choice) but I would like them to be compatible with my fish already. I have three angel fish one Pleco 4 Amano shrimpand a gourami. I'd like something that schools or maybe something that breeds easy. Also I will be adding four yoyo loaches. Any ideas?

I'm gonna get some of those neon tetras. My daughter likes the colors. Guess I had no choice when she saw those guys. Would yoyo loaches and clown loaches school together??

Probably not and your tank is too small for clown loaches.

Don't be sorry. Alls good. how would dwarf puffers do in a community tank? I've heard that they are more aggressive in lower numbers. Wondering if I could get three for the tank?

They tend to be just aggressive in general lol. I'll let someone else comment there though.

Dwarf Puffers are freshwater fish, but like all puffers (in my research), they're aggressive and territorial. Not the best choice for a community tank IMO.

That's why im asking all these questions. Want to get some expert advice. I will be getting my yoyos soon but would possible to keep a larger snail that may produce smaller snails for the loaches to eat? I know they like snails.

So no snails... yet. I did however get some neon tetras. My four year old LOVES the colors. So we have three of each color red, yellow and orange. They are really cool looking fish.
