Splitting up tank mates

I was hoping someone could help me divide up my fish tank. I was debating about upgrading to a larger tank. But I may just divide the contents up for the time being. Some of the occupants will stay in the 55G tank, the others will go into my old 29G tank.

My question is, who should go in which tank?

I know some fish prefer different kinds of water. Such as my dojo loaches like cooler water. So they are prime canidate for the move. Plus I could put sand in the tank, instead of gravel. Which I'm also told they love. But will four dojo loaches be okay in a 29G tank? And who else should I move with them? Do any of my other fish like cooler water? I was thinking of putting one of the gourami's in the tank, since they don't always get along the best with each other.

Here's what I currently have:

10 tetras (5 white, 5 lemon)
4 danios
2 sunset gourami
1 blue dwarf gourami
1 albino pleco (8" long, so he's not moving out of the 55G)
4 dojo loaches
3 yoyo loaches
7 corys (2 albino, 2 spotted, 3 green)

Please let me know of any suggestions you have. Or if you think I should just get the 90G tank.

Ok, if I was doing so, I would leave everything but the danios and the cories in the 55. If you want the danios to breed and the babies to survive then I would leave everything but the danios in the 55. You could leave the cories in the 55 and move the danios and one of the loach species to to the smaller tank.

Then again, if I had the room I would be getting the 90g as well as leaving the 55 up and running and setting up the 29 just because I could. Species specific tank in the 55, a mix of bottom dwellers and danios/rasboras in the 29. In the 90 I would be getting some larger schooling fish or a Bichir and whatever I could put in there that it wouldn't eat and wouldn't pick on the Bichir. (Maybe a group of Bichir if they can be kept in groups, I don't know)
