Mixing Bottom Dwellers (and how many?) in a 55g

So there are a number of bottom dwellers/feeders that intrigue me, and I was just curious as to what a good number would be for a 55 gallon, and whether there are any pairs I should avoid putting together.

In particular, these were some that interested me, and I was just curious as to what types of combinations would work in my 55 gallon (currently cycling, so I have some time to finalize things):

- dwarf crayfish (CPO)
- shrimp (e.g., cherry)
- cories (albino)
- albino bushynose pleco
- loaches (gold dojo)

I wanted a crayfish too but was afraid he would hurt some of the fish. But that depends what fish you get.
Shrimp will he good as long as they won't turn into food for the bigger fish. If it can fit in their mouth, there is a risk them being lunch. Haha.
Cories and plecos are nice. They clean well.
