55 gallon stock list

My ideal setup is
7 tiger barbs
1 bristlenose pleco
5 yoyo loaches
3 pictus catfish

I have 2 emporer 400 filters

Is this setup going to work?

Maybe just get 1 pictus haha they are awesome fish. They get large so prepare to rehome him if he grows to big. It should take a while tho!

I would do 3 pictus or the loaches I would do the loaches personally but pictus can live their life in a 55 they only get 4-5 inches at least the normal spotted pictus in most lfs do

No they get larger than that
Much larger
A 55 is not appropriate for a trio
