Redoing my 100g Community tank...

So I'm moving soon this weekend... to a house close by.
Looking to give my 100g tank a new decor setup. Here is what I'm thinking.

A) Remove all gravel and replace with sand.
B) Remove the remaining fake plants/decor to replace with living plants.
C) Down the line put some drift wood in (would be a few months)

Fish that are in the tank...
- Black Molly (1)
- Golden Wonder Killifish (2)
- Swordtails (9+/-)
- Giant Danios (7 +/-)
- Zebra Danios (2 +/-)
- White Clouds (2 +/-)
- Black Skirt tetras (7 +/-)
- White Skirt tetras (7 +/-)
- Snails

I thinks thats all of them lol...

Anyways give me ideas, I'm also open to removing some species to other tanks, and putting in other kinds of fish life. So input on that is helpful too.

Designing my 120 setup for my bedroom... send me ideas if you have any. Tank will house Endler's.

The only thing that jumps out at me are the killies. I had a pair of them in a community tank (they actually did spawn a few times and had some fry but ate their own fry) but they're relentlessly predatory. Mine ate neon-sized fish quite easily and even stalked around some tankmates for weeks before figuring out they couldn't eat them. I would worry that once yours got some size on them, they might eat your smaller fish (i.e. the white clouds). If you've got a male/female, it would be really cool to move them to a smaller tank of their own and try to breed them.

well I am setting up a 55+ gallon container to house water for WC's... I'll be putting a couple fish in it. which they could be the killi... it'll have plants, light on a timer, heater the works. But it'll be for WC's only not for show.

Oh it'll also be my container that grows plants.
