That's a 13 and 15g tanks there....
The Platy pair....yea that'll soon be a platy gang then; I'd pers only get males. The Zebra's are super active and would need some more swimming room then that and ideally are kept in groups (like 8+).
The CAE you already obviously know the issue about size; just also watch for the aggression matter there.

Why so shy on plants if I may ask?

yes, i agree on the danios needing more space. planning on getting another tank for them.
local pet shop selling a 70 L tank which is about 3 foot long for $70 au, sounds like a good deal to me, but do you think its big enough for danios?

as for the plants i've already forgotten what most of them are, i think i've got a lilli, some giant ambulia, some kind of ivy and a small sword. sorry but i can't name them all.

Three feet would definitely be good for danios. They'd love the room, and you could have a whole mess of them in there.
