Did I make a mistake with my YoYos?

I recently sold my 75G and upgraded to a 90 (The deal with DH is that I only have 1 big tank). Here is the current stock and I wonder if you guys think I have room for a shoal of YoYos:
Current Stock for 90 Gallon

4 Bolivain rams
6 false Juli cories
10- 12 melon barbs (active but peaceful)
6 congo tetras
3 Platy fish
1 adult male Bristlenose pleco (Aka. Mr. Grumpypants)
1 red "honey" gourami
2 Hillstream loaches (need more)

(Edit I have a planted tank which could also be a problem

My DH just purchased 7 tiny YoYo loaches. do you think I'll have room for their adult size?

Well, you have some fiah together that kinda need rather different water paramaters to thrive. But that aside, you have "room" the biggest problem i see outside of water compatibility is you would have lots of bottom dewlling fish competing with eachother.
The rams, loaches, cories, and bristlenose all take up the same part of the tank. And the rams and bristlenose are somewhat territorial

yes, all those bottom-dwellers are worrying me. I'm wondering about what you think about the water compatibility though? I am keeping all these fish without a heater so its about 73 and I'm running a Fluval FX-4. I know the hillstream loaches like it colder though. Any other suggestions?
(Edit) that BNPleco is super annoying. but he usually hangs out in his log and I make sure he gets plenty of veggies. I may have to re-home him though.
