First, ditch the Chinese algae eater ASAP - not suited long term to a community tank. Good decision on the Bala sharks. Possible bad news for your plants also, plecos are not plant friendly to all plants (even BN plecos will eat some plants). If you don't have broad leaf plants like swords, you may be ok for a bit. Not certain what you mean by white spot pleco, but I'm assuming a BN (Bristlenose/bushynose)?

Nor certain what products you have locally, but if you just added new fish without using a quarantine tank, I'd recommend a prophylactic treatment of the entire tank with a copper sulfate produce. I use CopperSafe, and usually follow that up with an anti-nematode treatment of Flubendazole (dewormer) before fish get near my main tanks.

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.
