Ya you seem pretty stocked. Instead of the rummynose you can add to the cory school and be done with your stocking.

Ditto: Too many species, not enough of any one species. Bump up the population of Cories and stop there.

Doest it make a difference if they are in a 4ft long tank?

sounds like a good length for a 200l, but it does not make a difference for the stocking suggestions we have given you. It would be preferable to have less amounts of species in higher amounts IMO
