i would say no to the clown loach because you need about 4-6 of them and they will get TOO BIG for a 60gal. i would also say no to the crab because im pretty sure they need a more "shallow" water and dry land to walk onto..
just keep in mind mollies are very prolific and you will have live babies in no time.. and for the ghost shrimp, they are really interesting but fish love to feed on them.. just a few things to think about :D
i would continue to do research, the tetras do best in schools and IMO i usually like a few varieties but more of those fish then many varieties and less of that kind but i guess it all depends on the fishes needs because some fish like schools and others are just best on their own..

well as for baby fry.. its usual for adults to eat them as well as other tank mates and sometimes a filter to suck one or two up so your population will basically stay the same unless you put them in another tank or theres usually those very few survivers so you really dont have to stress over it but its something to consider.. personally, i like neon or cardinal tetras in a nice size school, i think they look cool when they swim back and forth all together ..idk thats my opinion..

Right, take at least 6 tetras. You'll be rewarded by a beautiful schoal swimming together nicely.

Skip the single ghost glass cat as well. They are shoaling fish. One will be unhappy and die soon.

Crab. Well, doesn't work. If you really want an exciting shrimp, think about atya gabonensis: http://www.petshrimp.com/africanfiltershrimp.html (also available in blue). The look fearsome but would, in fact, never hurt even the smallest fish/shrimp. Since they filter much of their food from the water, you'll need at least a bit of current in your tank. They are quite hard to get, but if your tank is up and running well, PM me.

You might get away with the crab but don't be too shocked if fish disappear. They also need someplace to get out of the water, they are not fully aquatic.

You need to pick a different kind of pleco, one that doesn't need 70 gallons and get that big, they make a ton of mess. Maybe a clown pleco, or a bristlenose?

The tetras, are they actually jumbo sized or just at the end of their lifespan? Probably have a bunch of regular sized ones.

Forget the clam, you'd have to have green water all the time.

I don't know about the hatchets, especially if you want the crab. They stay to the top and try to jump a lot.

This is the song that never ends...
