Hi!! Identifying fish.

Hi!! How's it going guys? I acquired a 50 gal aquarium a couple weeks ago and I'm having issues identifying some of the fish in there. I'd love to get some help with this, much appreciated!!

I got the aquarium with:
5-6" common pleco
2 pictus catfish
1 albino cory
6 black neon tetra
1 swordtail male
1 bristlenose pleco

and one each of the fish whose pictures I've attached, except 2 of the fish with the orange tinted anal and caudal fin.

Any advice? I'm probably going to end up rehoming the big pleco, and maybe get some more corys and tetra.

The Rainbow looks like possibly a Irian Red Rainbow (Glossolepus Incisus). But some rainbows are so hard to tell apart, especially when young. Have a look through this link. I'm thinking it's in one of the first three groups.
