You also need to get rid of a few schools so you have enough room.

Any one or two plus a couple other fish. I'm not that knowledgable on zebra loaches but I will look them up now and see what their requirements are.

I think what you should go with is the following-
1 Bolivian ram
1 honey gourami
1 Molly OR two male guppies
5 zebra loaches
3 peppered cories and three sterbai cories
4 cherry barbs(2M:2F)
6 harlequins and 6 neons
6 head and tail light tetras
