I would worry a lot about keeping the ABF with Dwarf Gourami. The ABF's will prey on pretty much all other surface dwelling fish. As for invertebrates, I'd avoid the Blue Lobster, as he'll beat on the other bottom dwellers, but you should be just fine with shrimp, and there are some really colourful ones if that's what you're looking for.
Kuhli's are awesome. They aren't very tricky fish. A soft substrate and as big a group as you can fit is mostly what they need to survive. Also, sinking pellets, as they definitely won't survive off of algae. They like lots of plants and caves to hide in. I'd drop the corys, as it will be crowding your bottom level to keep two different creatures that live best in groups. I'd say you can get away with 4-6 loaches (especially if you drop the gourami). You could also probably put a cool pleco in that doesn't grow very large.
