Compatibility Question: Peacock Goby, CPD w/current tank mates

I have a 50 gal freshwater planted. Currently stocked with:
4 honey sunset gourami
9 black neon tetra
Cherry shrimp and blue velvet shrimp
Malaysian Trumpet Snails

Would these additions be compatible?
6 celestial pearl danio
2-5 peacock gobys

According to FishForums.net, I'm ok with my PH and Temp.
Ph 7.5
Temp 75 degrees F/ 24 C.

The warning is that the gobys might get aggressive with the tetras when breeding.
Are there any other concerns that I should be aware of? Someone has suggested that the CPDs might be too timid when feeding with the tetras. From the youtube videos I have seen, the CPDs tend to stay closer to the mid-bottom of the tank while my tetras stay at the top like hatchets. Would I still have a feeding issue?

Also are the peacock grudgeons best in pairs or since it is a large tank compared to their size, could I have 4-6 or is an odd number best, like 3 females to 1 or 2 males like w/gouramis?

Thanks for the help! I am having trouble getting feedback from my LFS. Attached is a photo of my tank, plus I am currently waiting for an order of java moss and subwassertang to come from aquabid.
