Tank overhaul!

so i had a 20 TT tank going with full plants and everything and it was nicely stocked and beautiful. but then i went away last summer and left my tank to my parents. they wer not able to stay on top of everything and pretty much killed my tank. wen i got back i did wat i could and sustained wat was left. yeasterday i completely overhauled and redecdorated the tank. i decided not to get live plants and made a rock structure with some live rock i had (i know its sw but i had it for a 10g i was gona do salty but i dont hav the time so i figured it would work as decoration, i can always reseed it later). i hav 3 filters going of different sizes. i hav a 15gph deco red sea filter that i hav rocks and a couple snails in, a tetra 2-10g filter (85gph) with filter floss and carbon, and a 175gph filter that im running with floss and some live sand (same deal as the rock).

currently i hav 5 cherry barbs (2 male, 3 female), 5 khuli loaches, and a dward catfish. i want so fairly weird stuff that is compatable, i used to work at m lfs so i can get them to order me stuff. the onlythings im for sure putting in are 3 dwarf gouramis and maye 3 dwarf neon rainbows

suggest anything u can think of. if possile with links for info

thanks in advance for ur help

I worry about the live rock altering your water parameters. It's probably OK for an African tank but the fish you've mentioned are meant to live in soft, acidic water.
