    I see no problem with the black skirts, but I would nix the rainbows. Maybe round out the number of tetras to a 10.
    130g: 6 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora
    I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

    I would go with the smaller praecox rainbows, instead of the larger melanotaenia species, and a much larger school than 3. There's no reason why you couldn't keep both rainbows and tetras. From there, you can add some sort of bottom dweller, like corys or maybe zebra loaches, plus a pleco. That would give you a well balanced tank with activity at all levels. Though with the otos, you may want to forgo the pleco.

    Most rainbows are hardwater species, the other fish, certainly the angels and the ottos, are softwater.

    My water is not hard and they do very well.
