I think if that is the stock you have already in there, wait it out because if all of them will grow and when they are of full size with cover the tank.

Just my thoughts, I havent kept any of them yet though and might be trying to try to keep a pair of Angels like urself and maybe Bosemanni Rainbows if I have the space in my 46 tall bowfront tank.

I think you may have trouble from the red tailed shark as he gets bigger. They don't usually tolerate other shark-shaped fish well. Your SAE & maybe the denisoni barbs could become targets. IME they aren't too fond of cories either, they don't respect the sharks bottom territory. Lots of caves will help.
