read the above then rehouse to appropriate aquarium sizes and water parameters.

as for your question feed no more than can be eaten within 5 minutes maximum, do this once or twice a day

I feed my fish once a day, in their 'morning', which is whenever I switch the lights on. This helps the fish get used to you, stops them being afraid of the light (which can happen with new fish) and they have the rest of their day to pick up any tiny bits of food that they might have missed.

I have to say, also, that I agree with daz. Angels grow far, far too big for a 64l tank, and they and the neon tetras need soft water to do well, whereas the guppies need hard water.

You should get the other fish identified ASAP; you can't properly care for a fish if you don't know it's requirements, and you can't know its requirements if you don't know what species it is. If you post a picture, someone here will be able to ID them for you.

Please don't think we're having a go at you personally; its very easy to get bad advice (especially from shops, sadly) and end up with a poorly stocked tank. We see it all the time.
