Good morning,

I think it would depend on the loaches that you want to keep. Clown Loaches can grow to 16" with a huge circumference requiring a large tank. It's also best that these loaches be kept in schools.

clown loach

Hopefully others will respond with other suggestions.

basically my concern is about safety of both the fishes
will there be harm to loaches by angelfishes
or vice-versa?

Angelfish and Loaches are fine together generally. There are a few Loaches that should only be kept alone and some need huge tanks.
what loaches are you thinking about?

I have kept Clown Loaches and angelfish together quite successfully. Neither will harm the other. BUT... Clown Loaches need large tanks, preferably from the start. 75 gallon is the recommended start up tank for Clown Loaches.
Aquarist48 gave you a link to a reputable profile on Clown Loaches. It's very interesting and informative.
I love the tank you have right now with the angels and clown Loaches but the clowns will have to be moved soon.
