Also what filtration are you using, tank size is not always the most important thing, Ill base my advice on the basis that you have bought a filter capable of running your tank quite well.
At least 5 x Clown Loach are recommended in a group.
Black Ghost Knife Fish only eats live or frozen foods, no flakes. Need a well planted tank with lots of hiding places.
Black Ghost Knife Fish is not recommended for your tank - it may eventually outgrow your tank space, potentially reaching up to 18 inches.
At least 5 x Bala Shark are recommended in a group.
Kribensis may become food for Bala Sharks.
Bristlenose Pleco needs driftwood.
At least 3xPolka Dot Loach are recommended in a group
To be honest I would be looking to move most of your fish out and then look to backfill the stock. Id say you are close to 150% over stocked.
I based this on a filter turning over 3 times your tank size every hour.
Just my opinion, im sure other people will have thier own too, but to me you need to act ono the fish you have, not buy any more
The filter turns over the tank about 4 times and hour.
