Bioload Question

After the 'impulse buy' that I made last night (see the "I saved it... or did I?" thread) and after doing some research on Ropefish, I got to thinking about what my bioload level is in my 75 gallon tank. I'm not really considering getting more fish I'm just curious is all. Here's what I currently have...

(1) Sailfin Pleco
(9) Tiger Barbs
(2) Pearl Gouramis
(2) Gold Gouramis
(1) Opaline Gourami
(5) Dojo Loaches
(4) Yoyo Loaches
(4) Bolivian Rams

I'm assuming that Sailfin is probably the biggest contributor to the bioload, but I can't see any of the other fish as being real issues? Any thoughts?

75G- (3) Firemouth Cichlids, (10) Tiger Barbs, (3) Dojo Loaches, (3) Yoyo Loaches, and (1) Sailfin Pleco.
46G- (3) Pearl Gouramis, (5) Black Skirt Tetras, (7) Harlequin Rasboras, (3) Dojo Loaches, (1) Clown Pleco

Looks pretty balanced to me. Kinda seems that there might be quite a few bottom dwellers though. I think the load is fine.
