Please read the profiles for fish before you acquire them. [Click shaded names for that profile]
The Bala Shark should go back immediately; they get large, they need a group, and a big tank.
The Blue Gourami could be trouble too.
Common Molly is usually peaceful, but stress can make fish aggressive. What are your water parameters?
