thoughts on my 60 gal tall plan

hello, I am new to this forum so apologies for any lack in lingo etc.

I am establishing a 60g tall tank with high-efficiency bulbs and co2 system, my wife is in charge of choosing the fish and here is what she has so far

Top dwellers: 8-10 silver hatchets

Middle Dwellers: 11-15 harlequin Rasbora, 1 blood parrot, 1 ghost knife, 5-9 gourami

Bottom Dwellers: 1 albino bristlenose pleco (moving from our smaller tank), 2 green cory cats, and 5 red cherry shrimp.

both of us are fairly new to keeping planted tanks, and are wondering
1) will this be too crowded
2) how many fish should be added at once and in what order
3) will all of these fish do well together

Thank you for your feedback! Looking forward to responses

I'm no expert but stocking level seems ok depending on your filtration.

Cory's are much more fun in bigger groups, at least four.

Depending on what type of gourami you get your shrimp might become a snack.

I'm not familiar with parrots, knives or hatchets
