Welcome to the AC....
You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

Well the nitrate is zero, that leads me to believe no cycle, although you said you changed the water recently, so maybe. What's the ammonia? No unexplained fish deaths? (besides your other gourami, which is just as likely to have been death by bullying).
Never had a shark but I am certain he will get too big for your tank, and far too aggressive when he is older.
Yes, rehome the pleco.
Once everything is sorted out over whether you are cycled or not, you should make your tetras a school of at least 6. They will be much more interesting and happy.
Assuming you take our advice and rehome the unsuitable fish, you should have some space on the bottom for smaller, peaceful bottom dwellers.
The guppies MAY try to mate with the female mollies, so keep an eye out for that. The dwarf gourami MAY try to tear off the fins of the guppies. A lot of it depends on the personalities you get.
Otherwise it sounds fine.10 gallon with a veiltail betta, 7 neons, 1 ADF, and one neat moss ball.
20 gallon with 6 female black phantoms, and 1 schwartzi cory

Thanks for the reply again and apologise for bein thick ha but I thought no nitrate was a good thing , when I bought the guppys I bought 5 within a day 1 died I just thort it was stress from movin tank ,the shark I was told it would grow to 13 centre meters and would not be aggressive asking aslong as its the only shark in your tank
