Unfortunately your fish are not compatible as they need very different conditions from each other. Cories and bristlenose need soft to neutral water; the hap needs very hard alkaline water. Additionally your substrate looks like coral sand which is too rough for fish that feed from and dig in the substrate such as cories and bristlenose. It can damage their barbels and allow infection to set in.

I guess you're using RO water?

I was until we moved the unit was broken in the move :( I'm waiting for a replacement and using HMA until it arrives, not ideal I know but its a stop gap measure :(
