I think in US gallons so I converted it.  98 liters converts to 25 or 26 US gallons.  I don't know what your 675 x 368 x 515 numbers are.  They certainly can't be centimeters so I didn't use them.

Based on a 25 or 26 gallon tank, your Red Tail Shark and Bristlenose Pleco will have to be re-homed.  This tank is just too small for them.  They need at least a 3 foot long aquarium.

Your guppies and mollies will be problematic because they are live bearers and will produce so many fry that you will soon need more tanks to accommodate them unless they are all males.

When in doubt, do a water change.
