you could probably have fewer corys, the more the better but 3 or more is ok.
also the plec will contribute hugely to the bioload.
i wouldn't get both platies and guppies...choose one or the other. the males are prettier in guppies, so you'd probably want to get those. i have heard they can be nippy though..
you could also only have one gourami.
Male Platys are more aggressive than any fish I've ever had... About equal with my male Bettas. Yes, seriously.
Would circle each other nipping fins until I put my hand between them in the dang tank! Eventually I ended up with 3 dead Platys and a couple more that I gave away.
