Are these fish compatible?

Hello i have a cycled 112 gallon aquarium and the fish i am looking to put in it are:(setup is based around the angel fish).
14 Angelfish
6 Bala Sharks
12 Zebra Danios
12 Platies
8 Rummy Nose Tetra's
6 CLown Loaches
and 12 Dwarf Gouramis.
I was just wondering if these fish are all compatible with each other, i have read and research and i am pretty sure that they all are. Thanks for your opionions and comments.** I know this is overstocked but i will remove fish as needed, or if you have the time you can use the fish i gave you and make another list of fish that is not overstocked.

To many angels, They will fight, also that's to many fish altogether.

Definitely overloading your tank. Clown Loaches get pretty large, and so do the Angels. You're looking at big problems down the road once they all grow up. Assuming they survive the initial, inevitable, all-out BRAWL. It would be like the Colisseum.

Consider this: Angels fully grown can reach 6" in length, and 8" in height. I'd say maybe 3 or 4 TOPS, especially if you want to have other fish in the tank, which you do, according to your other posts.

Also, too many angels will cause them to fight, eventually leading some to die and be a waste of money.

6 Balas will not do well in the tank either. They grow to 12 inches and will need plenty of swimming space to roam around.

There are other loaches to try. Botia kubotai and Botia striata will look great in your tank.:)

I'd stick with 4-6 gouramis(male and female) only. Males are quite aggressive against each other and will defend their chosen boundaries.

What about a red shark? I heard they only need 50 gallons.

Just because you don't like them doesn't mean the rest should not get them merely by preferences of one person.

I understand this is often quite debated but instead of sticking to balas, why not look into other species? There are several species that resemble the balas in shape. Puntius denisonii is one of the great choices assuming you can afford, of course.

Which knife fish are you talking about? I know perfectly well that knives are rather predatory and your other fish will be gone by the time they reach their potential size.

Livebearers are not that bad as long as you know how to regulate their population.

There is no reason to replace 6 rummies with 6 danios. Both occupy very different levels therefore the danios can be kept along with 20 rummies.

red tails get mean wen they get big ... iv had many ppl come into the store asking me wat to do. and i pretty muched picked everything else going into that.

balas look the best

black ghost knife

with the larger school the rummies will feel safer and be more active ... danios r always active and dont need a big group
