Post My tank

HI everyone! I just wanted to post on how my tank is doing.
I have a 40g
-three platys one male two females
-three zebra danios
-five kuhli loaches
-three oto catfish
-three ghost shrimp
I'm planning to get
-five black skirt tetras
-three swordtails one male two females
And four honey gouramis

The only problem I've experienced is the danios and one of the otos love to chase each other
I know I will be a bit overstocked but I am planning to add a lot of live plants and keep up on my
Water changes!

I would increase your schools on the danios (10) and ottos(6) and this should stop the aggression/chasing with them and once planted you may see some spawning with your egg layers and more natural behaviors with all the fish species you have......plant and call it stocked...maybe add a center piece fish like a male Betta or angelfish or gourami and one of these would help keep the population under control with the platy's
