Opinions on fish I'm planning to stock?

I'm going to start cycling a 70 gallon tank any day now, I made a list of fish I'd like to stock when the time comes, would just like an overview or suggestions, I wouldn't want to accidentally overstock

For 70 gallons:
3 swordtails
1Trinidad pleco (or 2 bushy nose plecos )
5 harleguin rasbora
I'm considering 1 rainbow shark
And just a hand full of some shrimp I haven't decided which yet
Any fish that would be good to remove or add?

The Shrimp will be eaten unless you have good cover.

Give the shark a hiding spot at one end so he doesn't harass the other fish.

Up your Rasboras. Try ending up with 12-20. Better display.

A couple of large groups of fish look much better than a mishmash of five of this and four of that and six of that.

Cherry Barbs are nice or Bleeding Heart Tetras.
