    How big is the tank?

    Well I would think the 3 that you listed as non aggressive should be the first ones to move. What size tank is it? (Both gallons and tank dimensions).

    55 gallon 48lx12/12wide 21/12 deep

    Agggh, if that's the case it makes it a bit harder.

    I would get rid of:
    The Bala sharks (need a school and tank too small)
    The silver dollars (need a school and tank too small)
    The goldfish (is a cold water fish and not compatible with tropical fish)

    That leaves you with the rainbow shark, blood parrot, guppies and Rainbowfish. However if you want to keep the shark and blood parrot you will have to get rid of the guppies and possibly the Rainbowfish (what type of Rainbowfish are they?).

    Turqoise rainbow australlian

    Ok then I would get rid of the following fish (and in this order if you can't get rid of them at once):

    1. Guppies (are too small and likely to be eaten)
    2. Goldfish
    3. Bala sharks
    4. Silver dollars

    And keep the following:
    1 rainbow shark
    1 blood parrot
    3 turqouise rainbow fish

    However I am not sure if those fish will make the tank overstocked, understocked or just right, you'll have to wait until someone with more experience comes along, sorry.

    Do you have any other tanks that you could put the other fish into?

    How many rainbows do you have? Australians and the Turquoise will both be fine. They need at least 6 in school.
