3 odessa barbs
5 zebra danios
1 common pleco
1 striped rapheal catfish
6 corydoras
2 rosy barbs
1 opaline gourami

If it was my tank I wouldn't add anything more. A common pleco gets huge; they have the potential to reach 18" ( they have one this size at my LFS). I'm not familar with a clown barb??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I had to go google it as I'd never heard of it. You learn something new every day
Any chance you have any pics of your tank? Would love to see it.

With that pleco in the tank I wouldn't be adding anything else to it. The pleco is going to get VERY large.
