Orinoco "biotope" stocking

Okay so, soon ill be upgrading my geophagus tapajos and L240/L260 plecos 75 to a 6ft 125, and Im planning to try and simulate somewhere in the Orinoco and do as close a biotope as I can. I also want to try to stimulate a wet/dry season, ive already started to plan out the hardscape with various rocks and driftwood but im wondering for stocking options, ill be moving my 6 Geophagus, 3 L240, 3 L260, and 4 Angelfish to it but im wondering if i can in total have the following:

Geophagus x6
Angelfish x4
L240 x3
L260 x3
Corydoras x10 (Delphax or concolour)
Rummynose tetra x35ish
Wood catfish (Ninja/orca or honeycomb) x6ish
Marbled hatchetfish x10
German Ram x4
and possibly Cardnial tetra x10 (or could beef up the rummy school)

I would say that stocking is just about spot on. Also I love the Orinoco biotope idea. Such a cool eco system that is home to many of our popular aquarium species.
