What do you think of this crazy stocking?

Saw this somewhere.It's a 25 gallon tall tank,30in by 24 in by 6in
Stocked with-
One Pleco (Not common)
Two Swordtails
Three Mickey Mouse Platies
One Lyretail Molly
One Dwarf Gourami
One Blue Gourami
Some of the fish get the same length as the width of the tank!

That does not seem that bad. I mean, its just the Blue Gourami and possibly the pleco (depending on the species) that are going to be the main issue.

I remember a few weeks ago alot of fuss going on about some guy who put 4 Angelfish in a 20 Gallon long.

for those fish to be happy would take a 30 gal or bigger ,
especially the pleco he's the only one who will grow over 10 inch easy , all the others are about 4 inch tops ,
they tell you they grow big so you don't overstock,
and your fish can move around
