Community tank question

I have a 33gal that I am wanting to add some more fish to. It's current inhabitants are :
-6 female mollies
-1 male powder blue gourami
-1 female dwarf susnet gourami
-3 cory cats
- possible adding the otto cat from my other tank

I would really like to add some more, but want to be careful as this is my first larger tank. I want to make sure that everyone gets along and is happy with their space. I was hoping to add some very colourful fish, maybe one large centerpiece fish. Not an angel though. The tank is on its way to being heavily planted with a large piece of driftwood and some nice hiding places. I really like loaches but I am not too familiar with what kind of environment they like. I know some of them can get huge, do any stay reasonably small? Any recommendations would be appreciated?

Kuhli loaches stay small enough for you to have a group of them. You might also want to increase the number of cory cats to 6 or so, as they'll be much happier (and much more active) in a larger group.

Dwarf cichlids make good "centerpiece" fish. A ram, kribensis, apistogramma, or keyhole cichlid would be a nice addition.
