The other fish ideas are OK, though I would myself not increase the Columbians beyond 7. They and the Diamonds do get largish, and 7-9 of the latter is fine. I'm assuming there are lots of plants.
Yes there is lots of plants in the tank, though I need to create some hiding spots for the loachs before I can get them. I was just waiting to see if they would all be okay together before I made some. Thanks Byron.
Ps Yes the loach I was talking about is the Botia histrionica
