Question Help identifying fish?!

A friend couldn't take care of these fish anymore and gave them to me, they are soon to be moved to a bigger, hopefully cleaner, tank. There is a common pleco (variety unknown), a gourami (variety unknown), a yellow frog (variety unknown), and some sort of silvery fish that I think is probably a giant danio. I would be extremely grateful if anyone could help identify any of these for me.

also, do giant danios do better in groups of danios? he and the gourami seem to be very friendly

I'm not sure on the exact variety of these fish but you're pretty close and I do think that's a giant danio. They do better in groups of 4-5+

The gourami looks to be a gold gourami.

Giant danio I am certain. Unless that gourami is really stressed it Doesn't look like a gold one. The frog looks like an albino ADF

I was going to say albino adf too, but I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between ADF and African clawed

I've never seen an albino dwarf African frog, op you should look up African clawed frog and see which it looks closest to.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but I would've guessed african clawed frog.
ACFs don't have webbing on their front feet, ADFs do. Might want to check into that. The clawed frogs get big, and I hear aggressive.
My sister and I had some as kids, but in separate tanks, and no fish, so I can't say whether or not they'll work with the current stock as it gets older.
