I would only add a group of Discus. 5-6 of them do much better then 1 or 2 (unless they are a pair) They gain strength from numbers and feel much more secure.

Also with the current inhabitants in that tank I would worry a little about the loaches and plecos. trying to suck on the Discus slime coat. Not everyone has an issue with this but has been known to happen. I swear by the time you get done researching about fish like discus you wonder why anyone keeps them at all lol. (my reason is I appear to be a bit crazy)

O believe me I know that can be hard. What I ended up doing is finding a local breeder and went and saw his whole setup and he gave me a great deal on the fish. If you buy locally you know they are likely raised in similar water conditions. You can ask to see them eat and watch them for a bit, see the parents ect.
As far as variety goes I checked out Hans and let me just say he has some fish that are truly worthy of the price tag. The trick is not to buy too cheap and get dud discus (breeder culls ect) then you think it is all your fault for them not making it or being stunted. While more expensive does not always mean quality if you know what to look for you will also know weather the fish is worth the price. A quality fish is always important but when a tetra dies you are likely not out $20-$100.

You got a really nice selection there. I especially like the clown and ghosts. I've heard of panda angels before & I don't understand why they are called that. Aren't they unexpressed koi? I dunno??? Anyway, nice set up too!

No glue just balanced good. I tried to match the pcs together so the the grooves helped hold them together
