tank size vs. population

Currently I've got 4 clown loaches, 3 yo yo loaches, 2 zebra loaches, and 2 angelicus loaches, all at or under 2 inches. I've got 2, 2 inch siamese algae eaters, 2, 0.75 inch otocinclus cats, and 1 2 inch dwarf flame gourami in my 29 gallon tank. I've got an Aquaclear 200 and a Tetra Whisper 30 and an undergravel filer. I figure my water cycles at least 330 gallons per hour.
I'm going to change the substrate in the tank to a sand and smooth-pebble substrate that is more suitable for loaches. I'm also going to add a Penguin mini with a Biowheel that does 100 gallons per hour since I'm getting a way from the undergravel filter b/c it won't work with sand. That would give me 430 gallons per hour for the 29 gallon tank. I'm moving the gourami and one of the siamese algae eaters to a 10 gallon tank. Th
