55 gallon stocking list

Hi, I want to know if this stocking list is good for a planted 55 gallon tank. Here's the list:

1 angelfish
1 blue gourami
3 zebra loach
5 bleeding heart tetras
8 otos
2 rams
3 male platies
3 male sword tails

I would take away either the bleeding heart tetras or the zebra loaches and therefore get a female blue gourami for the guy and a second angel.

I'd get rid of the loaches and get another gourami and angel. Either that or get the loaches and half the otos.

I guess half the otos would be ok too, since you only have a 55gal. That way they won't start "starving", cuz your tank is overclean . But IMO you got to get at least those 4 otos, they like to be in groups, are more active and braver than.

I like your list as is. Looks good to me and I don't see any problems. If you get a pair of gourami's or angelfish you could possibly see aggression if they breed.
