How long do you plan on keeping them in this setup?

banjo cats get up to 11in.
whiptail cats get up to 7 inches.
Clown Pleco can get up to 5 inches
Angles about 6 inches.

So (11 * 2) + (7 *2) + (5*3) + (6*3) = 69, this is the ammount of gallons needed if you go by the generic 1 inch per gallon. Not to mention that the fish that are 11inches long will not be very comfy in such close environment. If you plan to upgrade that's good if not I would forgo the Banjo Cats, I know first had the problems from keeping bigger fish in too small of space.
