50 Gallon stocking?

I personally wouldnt mix an Angel with a Red Tail Shark, seems like too much potential for aggression when they both (the shark mostly) get fully grown.
The Barbs should be fine just watch for nipping of the Angel and increase their numbers if necessary-this can cut back on nipping.
The Bichir may get a little too big for a 50, but that's without knowing its dimensions. And fully grown might much on some smaller Barbs...
