Ya lol. With the fish, i would change it slightly;
5 bala sharks (actually a schooling fish)
6-10 clown loaches (loves big schools)
3-6 pictus cats (actually a schooling fish as well)
10-20 rosy barbs (nice big tank, nice big school)
7-12 congos (again, nice big tank, nice big school)
3-5 silver dollars (schooling fish as well)

The unknown cichlid looks like keyholes. Im i right? Also in the first picture, behind the heater looks like a dwarf gourami...

All the extra fish seem great but they would out grow the tank quick wouldnt they,yeah there was a dwarf in it but its gone now,yeah there keyhole cichlids,think i might have to take my wee oscars back there doing a good bit of nipping etc to the congos and barbs.

thanks tankman of the ifo of schooling fishies ;)

Both stocking lists are inadequate for this tank, unfortunately. This tank is only 53 gallons (Jewel Rio 240 is just the name, tankman, not the size) which makes the following fish too large/active/high bioload - Clown loaches, oscars, pictus and silver dollars. The angels will do well in this tank as will the barbs and congo tetras. If you want the angels, the keyhole cichlids can't stay, unfortunately. You also can only have one rainbow (albino) shark to a 4ft tank, as they are territorial. There isn't enough room for a proper school of pictus catfish, so I also suggest rehoming him. Increase your barbs to a school of around 10, the congos to a school of around 10 and get rid of the fish I mentioned and this tank will be wonderful. You could even add a school for around 10 cory catfish.
