55 gallon stocking question....

So about a week ago, I set up a brand new 55 gallon. Its fully cycled now, due to Stabiblity.

Anyway, right now I have four emerald coreys, four angelicus botia, three zebra danios, one pictus catfish, one red finned shark, and three rosey barbs in it. To my knowledge everything is compatible, and nothing gets extremely huge (biggest would be the pictus at 8").

Anyone think that set up will work in the long run?

Oh and heres a picture of the tank:

Hi David.

I would rehome the pictus catfish despite being compatible.:) Sooner or later, he'll eye your danios and barbs as his first victims. It's not surprising that pictus have been known to eat smaller fish.:) Once you get rid of him, you can try otos which are quite excellent in eating diatoms.:) Also, this will enable you to select more choices like rasboras and tetras.:)

Good luck.:)
