60 lbs black gravel Cleaned and ready to go
Aqua clear 110 (cleaned and ready to go )
Hydor THEO Submersible Aquarium Heater 400W UL (cleaned and ready to go)

Sharks, cats... Doesn't really help...

Red tail sharks? Rainbow sharks?

Cory catfish? Pleco? Channel catfish?

Also, Danios need a group of at least 6, and may get eaten by an adult red tail shark or channel cat, depending on what you mean..

Many Gouramis are peaceful, if delicate. I wouldn't count them as aggressive unless you add two many males to a tank.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to say I have a problem..

Picking fish can be one of the most complicated parts of setting up a tank, and wanted to check to make sure you researched your species before you get started...

A tank with incompatible fish is doomed from the start.
To start out with, you could look through our Tropical Fish Profiles

May also want to find out what your local water parameters are, and find fish that suit it...
