What size tank for 7 clowns?

I have 7 clown loaches ranging in size from 2" to 4" - most are about 3". They are in an 80 gal tank but I also have other fish - 4 discus, 2 Siamese algae eaters and 1 ancistrus. This level of stocking was fine when I started because the clowns were tiny - perhaps 3/4" long. Now it seems too high. What size tank should I upgrade to if I want to keep all these fish healthy? Thanks.. Joan
