Im sorry, but the cory is the only thing id even consider to keep in that size tank. I dont know much about bichirs, but i know they should be around 55g+. Cichlids need a similar sized tank, and should be cichlids only as they are very aggressive. Finally, the clown loaches get huge- both long and fat, so i think people say when full grown they should be in a tank closer to 100g
