The Common plec will probably outgrow the tank.

Bumble Bee gobis are really brackish fish instead of FW..you might want to think about that.

To me, your stocked for a decent amount of time.

Don't do a common pleco! I have a 55g and my tank is too small for my common pleco who's only 2-3 years old.

Bumblebee gobies should absolutely be fine in hard alkaline waters.

I'm quite suspicious of information that says a brackish fish can "adapt" to freshwater conditions. I think what it really means is that they will live, but their lifespan will be significantly shortened. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm not sure I would risk it.
