Glass/Ghost cats need to be in groups of at least 6.

Glassfish are brackish, I believe. So they are out.

The Glassfish were sold to me like 4 months ago as freshwater fish..... Since they've lasted this long, I'm assuming they will last another night, but what should I do for them in the meanwhile until I can get them a new tank???

The other fish wont tolerate salinty levels, so you can either keep them as is or give them back. They can live in FW for a short while, but it shortens their life span.

Ok, thanks. I'll check with the fish store tomorrow to see if they will take them.

Ok the glassfish are moving out this afternoon. So how does this sound?

6 Glass catfish
1 freshwater angelfish
2 dwarf gourmis

I have a second tank about the same size (not sure the exact measurements) that I think I would like to connect via an aquabridge in the next 3 - 6 months... maybe expand my options a little bit...

I think I would only do 1 dwarf gourami. They tend to squabble if they are both males.

Agreed.

And The Angel may go after the glass cats once it matures, but I think that they would be too large for one.

You also have room for some bottom-dwelling fish, such as Corydoras Catfish or a pleco. Both would make very good additions. You could even have some Kuhlii Loaches if you don't like cories or plecos, or possibly YoYo loaches if you have sand and enough hiding spots.

Ok, so:
6 Glass catfish
1 freshwater angelfish
1 dwarf gourmi

And something for the bottom....
