    For the most part I think they would be fine, but because they are all bottom of the tank dwellers, it'll get a little crowded down there.  I would suggest the 75 gallon being better.  These are all basically peaceful fish but the two Brown Knifefish may get aggressive with each other as they age, so you may just want one one of those. The Glass Knifefih actually do well in a group, and five is the suggested number.

I just bought one of these fish, and it seems to get along with all of my fish, even my pictus cat. It is an interesting fish but does seem a little shy.
