Thats what im planning to do but i have my 2 females in with my other fish there all getting along perfectly fine no flaring or chasing, should i take them out if iincase they start eating the tropical flakes.
My other fish are :
2 Angel fish
2 Silver sharks
5 guppies (2male, 3females)
1 gourmi (cant spell it lol)
2 eel like snail eaters
2 Apple snails and finally a common pleco there in a 30 gal filtered and fully cycled tank
There all babies atm, i intend on getting a larger tank at the end of the month the angels are about an inch n half n the plecos currently 2 inchs, so all babies.
I was told when i got them that the angels would be fine with the guppies as there stil young they'd get used to each other, this info came from family friend who has kept fish for over 40 years n has never had a problem with angels n guppies.
I think the Angels and guppies would be fine together, but NOT THE SHARKS and the guppies/Bettas.
Why not the sharks and guppies/bettas, I had the sharks with my guppies before i got the bettas and they where fine together the betta fish are the only new fish to be added to the tank n they were in breeder nets for 24 hours before released into tank.
My sharks are still small my largest 1 recently went to fishy heaven after having him/her for 6months n was about 11 1/2inchs before dying

I know that sharks are nippers so to speak but there are loads of hiding places in the tank (half the time i cant find the fish cos the backs just plants n theres caves n hiding places all over the tank)
Because the sharks will GROW. They won't always be small. They get big enough to eat feeder Goldfish. They WILL eventually eat your smaller fish.
I know they will grow, I've hada shark that got to almost full size i was going to rehome him 2 a petstore when he died in transit n he/she was fine with the guppies, I'm sorry i just dont understand i've ALWAYS kept guppies n sharks together without any problems
