Question 60 Gallon setup (Building around a Black Ghost Knife)

Howdy, I was wondering if anyone could take a look at my planned 60 Gallon tank setup and tell me anything that should be changed or if it's alright. Also, if anyone can suggest water change length, etc, it would help.

So far I've got the following fish

5xTiger Barbs
5xGreen Tiger Barbs
2x Bala Sharks
3x Rainbow Sharks
5x Cherry barb

Want to add:
1x Pleco (Planned)
1x Black Ghost Knife (on order)
(Any suggestions on adding certain fish?)

Ornaments include:
Petsmart.com - Fish: Decorations: Top FinŽ Balinese Dragon with Airstone Aquarium Ornament - Dragon with built-in bubbler

And in the back I have two bubblers in the center and opposite side i'm putting the dragon on, covered in the gravel I'm using and hidden by fake plants.

I've been told to get a log or cave-like item for the ghost knife, but I'm not sure what to get. I got until the end of the week to pick something

The ghost knife likes places to hide. A popular hiding place is called a "ghost tube". It is a see through tube where it will hide. They usually only come out at night when it is dark out. You can get a LED aquarium bulb for your hood. Mine loves its live plants so I would suggest them, particularly amazon swords. To acclimate it use the wet drip method, they are very sensitive to water changes. Good luck!

In the ghost knife tank at petsmart they use the little plastic tunnels people put in hamster cages

1 29g - one red tailed shark, an opaline gourami, and a bristlenose pleco
