Type of fish

My friend just got a 55 gallon tank that came with some fish and they were too big for what he was doing so he gave them to me and now I just wanted to see if anyone could help me with the names of them. If any of them are to blurry or dark let me know and I'll try to get better ones

The second pic looks like a pacu...which can get the size of a basketball. That or it might be a variation of a silver dollar which doesn't get as big.

The guoramis can get pretty big too so I hope you have a big tank.

The third looks like some sort of loach, maybe a Burmese loach?

The fourth picture is a Leporinus fasciatus, commonly just called a Leporinus or banded Leporinus. It also will get pretty big. 14" if memory serves. They like some veggies in their diet and sometimes will roll upside down to get at food on the bottom.

I also think the second picture is a pacu, not a silver dollar.

Definitely not a pacu, some species of silver dollar.

The loach is an angelicus loach.

Ditto the kissing gouramis.

Ditto the Leporinus.
