Semi agressive 29 gallon?

Hello, I want a semi aggressive tank, I currently have 1 peppered Cory cat, 4 kuhli loaches, one balloon Molly, and 4 red eye tetras
I really want to start adding fish as soon as I can
Here is an idea
1 red tailed shark
1 other bottom feeder
1 gold gourami
1 other top level swimmer
1 schooling fish
And one or two more mid level swimmers
1 bn pleco
1 clown pleco
Any ideas? Thanks

No red tailed shark because they get at least 6 inches and are incredibly aggressive. Gold also get to big imo. I would add a few more Cory's and 2 more red eyes. I would also choose a bn or clown. Ok bad news over lol

Have you seen red serape tetras, there nippy and semi aggressive. Also 1 DG could work

I'd remove the Molly since it would get beaten up. I'd add a rubber lip pleco

I'd add only one pleco unless you have multiple hiding spots

Yea I have two hiding spots

Is an opaline gourami or a kissing gourami too aggressive to be with my fish?

They both get to big for that tank IMO, especially the kissing G

Hmmm ok

I'm going with a dwarf gourami, do you think it will be a bad idea to add a honey gourami?
