Stocking ideas

My 55 gallon used to be a goldfish tank, but once they got too big for me to keep I sent them to my neighbors pond...I recently began to slowly stock tropical freshwater ( new for me) and I started with 6 guppies and 3 mollies and lost 3 guppies and 1 Molly in quarantine. Anyway, I was planning my stock and happened upon aqadvisor (of course with a grain of salt) and my plan seemed to work in theory but I would rather have opinions of experience. So:
6 guppies
4 mollies
4 julii corydoras
5 kuhli loaches
5 bleeding heart tetras
5 bosemanos rainbow fish (?)
1 bn pleco

Slow stock of course

Again aqadvisor not the end all be all...
Opinions?

If you like the rainbow species I'd also recommend praecox rainbows they're gorgeous
