Advice for aquarium and fish stock

Hi, I'm concerned that I may have overstocked my aquariums. While trying to make my shoaling fish happy, I may have went overboard. I have 4 aquariums. 1 - 29 gallon (empty)
1 - 22 gallon
1 - 35 gallon
1 - 70 gallon

This is where the fish currently are:

70 gallon
1 Bala Shark
1 Blue Crayfish
1 Feather fin Syndontis
3 Polka dot Loaches
1 pleco
1 Bristle nose pleco
1 Striped Raphael
2 Flying Fox
2 Angelfish
2 bronze Cory cats
2 peppered Cory cats
2 similas Cory cats
ghost shrimp
2 pictus catfish

35 gallon
6 black long skirt tetras
4 long finned red serpaes
8 phantom heart tetras
4 long finned danios
10 neon tetras
3 gold neon tetras
4 male guppies
3 kuhli loaches
1 dwarf neon goby
1 clown pleco
1 albino bristlenose pleco
5 ottocats
snails (mystery & trap door)
Ghost shrimp
Cherry shrimp (were supposed to be ghost shrimp but they're red, so I think they're cherry shrimp)

22 gallon
1 female betta
2 dwarf freshwater puffers
Snails
ghost shrimp

Please advise as to where I should move the fish. My angelfish are bullies so please keep that in mind.

Any recommendations would be most welcome! Thanks.

Well I think you meant schooling fish, since your schoaling fish are quite lonely. The 35g has 8 different types of schooling and schoaling fish in there.I'd remove: long finned red serpaes, gold neon tetras, and long finned danios.I'd also move one Pleco or rehome it.then id boost the number of cories.
22 : those puffers will nip the fins off that betta and I would make moving them the first priority... The snails and ghost shrimp could most likely be eaten by the puffers.
I'm no good with any of your 75g fish so I can't recommend anything

When I first got a puffer, I had him with danios, neons, shrimps, snails and bettas. The puffer seemed overwhelmed with the danios and hid when it was feeding time. I moved the puffer to a 5 gallon with another puffer. I've had them since May and they've never attacked a fish or shrimp. I moved them both to the 22 g because I am trying to cut down on the number of aquariums.
The pet store that I bought them from kept the puffers in a community tank. I have researched them and got various responses. Some are great in community tanks while others aren't. Mine are fine.
However, I don't think I would trust them with my long finned tetras.
Who should I move to the 22 gallon? Neons & ottocats? Phantom hearts?
