I have a 29 gallon aquarium that needs some stocking. The current residents are 5 zebra danios, 3 corys, 2 platies, 1 bamboo shrimp, and 1 red-tailed shark. I'm planning to add 2 rams, 2 angelfishes, and 2 dojo loaches. Is that okay?

I think whether or not its too much would depend on the filtration capacity, frequency of water changes, etc. I've successfully kept far more fish in a tank than is generally reccomended for long periods of time without harm by increasing the filtration and water changes. For example my temporary housing tank (10 gallon) currenly has 5 praecox rainbowfish, 1 colombian tetra, and 6 angelfish. That's far more than is considered ok by most people however have filtration adequate for a 40 gallon tank and also do daily 40% water changes. Fish are all fine and healthy. All depends on how much work you want to put into it.

Avoid the angelfish in this case. What is the height of your tank? 18 inches is the minimum for scalares. A shark and 2 rams is asking for trouble. Both dwell most often on the bottom and will have territory problems. I would avoid the red-tailed shark as they can get aggressive.
