I think you are fine if you take back the silver dollars eventually.

I have a couple of comments. Is your pleco a common d, if so, does he have a different home to go to someday? Also, your shark will quite possibly develop aggressions issues, but maybe he will be ok since he is living with cichlids. Other owners have suggested to me that even though 55g is the commonly given minimum tank size, that 75g is actually much more appropriate for rtbs due to territorial issues and activity level. But, I do not own one, so I am just passing on the advice.
Aside from that, I do not think you are overstocked, but I am just going to add that IMO you should get 3 more giant danios so they will be happy in a full school. Same thing with the tiger barbs. They cab get nasty when not kept in proper sized schools.
The driftwood sounds like an awesome find. I hope your last 2 pieces cooperate with you!

Okay i think you should get a bristlenose pleco instead of a common. Also, like the other guy said get one large school instead of 2 small ones. Also i dont no anything abt red tailed sharks, but dont take a chance on the agression.

Ohh no... That looks like a common pleco to me and those get huge very fast!! It would of been better if you had a pleco that doesnt get go big so you could have more room in ur tank. Thats not good, but still an awesome fish!

I agree. It looks like a common to me. Most of the plecos sold in petstores are common plecos.
