Talking 55 Gallon Stocking Question

In exactly 6 days i am getting a 55 GALLON TANK!!!!! Some of you may have read my other thread when i was asking people to remind me why i wanted a tank, and now im sure, there is no DOUBT in MY MIND!! Now i know it will be a while untill I actually put in any fish, but i just want to have time to make sure i can fit all the fish i have in this list..... I know its a lot of fish, and please forgive me if im being stupid ..... BUT keep in mind that the tetras have small bioloads, so...

Alright, well here's the stocking list:
4 Mollies
10 guppies
3 Platies
10 Neon Tetras
4 Bloodfin Tetras
6 Pristella Tetras
1 Plecos
2 Swordtails
3 Endler's Livebearers
2 Kribs

My Tanks:
20 Gallon Community Tank
5 Gallon Guppy and Fry tank

SOON TO COME!!
A 55-75 gallon tank, hopefully

*Remember, its not how big a tank is, its how hard you worked on that small tank.
