Stocking 55g

Here it is,
5- Serpae Tetra
8 inches
1- Black, Red-Tailed Shark
5.5 inches
2- Red Honey Gourami
4.8 inches
1- Striped Rapheal Catfish
7.2 inches
3- Otos
6 inches
4- Zebra Loaches
16 inches
5- Long-Finned Danio
10 inches

Grand Total: 57.2 inches

I plan on using added filteration to ensure they all can live well. I know understocking is better than overstocking, but what can I say? I like fish. In this tank I plan on using add current to the tank, air bubbles, powerheads, BUT NO UGFs. This is a semi-planted tank with peagravel and small river pebbles as a substrate. Want I would like to know is if these fish are capable of living with eachother and thriving in this sort of tank. ALL comments, critics, suggestions are appreciated.

Aside from the somewhat high bioload, I do not see any appreciable problems at all. What filtration are you planning?

I would suggest a canister filter if you can afford it, if not, a HOB power filter is good. Do you already have all of those fish? or is that what you are planning on buying?
