55 gallon tank

I was just wandering if someone had some fish suggestions for me!

My current stock:

1 albino bristlenose pleco
1 bristlenose pleco
1 red tail shark
5 tiger barbs
2 Bolivian ram cichlids
1 gold gourami


Also, I put my rams in about 2 days ago, the shark seems to be chasing them quite a bit. Should I remove them?

I have a 20 gallon tank that had a baby tiger Oscar in it, I was gonna upgrade to a 40 gal for him but it got columnaris and he died, should I just drain it, bleach everything, fully plant and cycle, it and put my rams in there?

Well the shark is pretty aggressive towards other bottom feeders, did you give him his own retreat?
Until you see some serious stuff going on besides chasing, that's when you should remove
By the way, I would add 3 more barbs because they will nip at your gourami

I have multiple hiding spots in my tank for my shark!
