Forget the shark, with any bottom fish. As someone mentioned, quite correctly, these fish will become more territorial as they mature, and they do not appreciate sharing space with similar fish. The loaches are especially problematic, and while I can't say definitely about the corys, for the sake of the gentle corys I wold not subject them to even possible harassment from a shark.

As for the upper fish, while I would not normally mix any barb with gourami, due to the activeness of most barb and the sedate quiet demeanor of all gourami, the cherry is not so likely to cause trouble. But forget the Black Widow Tetra or any of its variations, as these will nip gourami.

Did you not read through the thread before posting, or did you just find that our advice was inadequate?

In the thread, post #2, you advised against the shark. In post # 4, the OP "revised" his list and still included the shark with loaches. I was confirming your earlier advice, as sometimes a second person saying the same will add some weight.

My comment on the cherrys was not previously mentioned, so that was additional.
