Would this setup work?

I have a 46 gallon bowfront fish tank. I want to add 1-2 leopard ctenopoma, 3-5 sterbai corys, and 2-4 kuhli (coolie) loaches? This will work right?

    Spotted Perch do NOT do well in pairs. Adults do actually fight.

    I would do:

    - 1 perch

    - a school of largish barbs or tetras or danios (probably would work but could get eaten)

    - 5 cories

    - at least 4 loaches or you'll never see them (also need a sand bottom and plenty of cover)

    Good luck :]
