Exclamation Wanting to start a new 29 gallon tank

Hi, I'm new to the forums and needing some information on some things. I plan on starting up a new 29 gallon tank. It's going to be a planted tank with some s-repens and amazon sword plants with 'Flora-Max' substrate.

As of right now, I have a 15 gallon tank with 1 pleco, 1 powdered blue gourami, 4 ghost shrimp, 2 long-finned zebra danios, and 5 black-skirt tetras.

I was wondering if I do the tank upgrade if I give my pleco to my friend who also has a fish tank, can I get 2-3 otos, 5 black kuhli loaches, and one or two gold dojo loaches?

Would Love some input on this;
thanks

I don't see a problem with it. I would increase the otos and zebra danios to schools of 6+

Why not keep the pleco?

I did some research on the plecos and know they can get really big. And by keeping small algae eaters like otos they'll clean more.
