The short answer to your question is "no."
Other members have commented on the oscar, enough said there. Rainbow fish, tiger barb, corydoras, clown loach are all shoaling fish which means they must be in a group. The number in the group depends upon which fish. And some of these are far too large (potentially) for anything but a very large tank. And many will not co-exist with others. You might want to research the fish; we have profiles under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top, and all of the identified fish are in our profiles. If the name shades in the post, you can click on it for that profile.
