3 Gouriamis
11 platies
1 rosy barb
1 zebra danio
1 mountain shrimp and 2 ammano shrimp
1 black ghost
2 catfish and 1 featherfin catfish
1 black phantom tetra
1 neon tetra

You need to take some of those fish out and put them in a much larger tank.
The ones that can fit in a 120 litre tank are;-

1 black phantom tetra
1 neon tetra
3 white cloud mountain minnows
11 platies - some of them.
1 rosy barb
1 zebra danio
1 mountain shrimp and 2 amano shrimp
Maybe the gouramis depending on species and possibly the two catfish, again depending on species.

You have stocked for a 120 gallon tank and some of the fish are not compatible.
Most of your fish should be in groups of the same species.
Black ghosts eat smaller fish as they grow and they grow to around 50cm quite quickly if well kept. The squeekerr shoud grow to 8" (20cm).

A typical 120 litre tank can house about 15 adult platy sized fish or 20 whte cloud/zebra danio sized fish at most.

Again as usual I agree with diademhill, what kind of filtration are you running on this tank and how long has it been setup? Many of the species you have, such as the danios, tetras, barbs, and depending on the species of catfish should all be being kept in groups of 6 or more. Another thing to note is that white cloud mountain minnows are a temperate water fish, and can never really thrive in a tank with tropicals. As of right now I think that your tank is rather overstocked, or at the very least incorrectly stocked. Could we also maybe get your water parameters?
