Fish combo for 30 gallon!

I apologize for those who have been helping me try to pick a good combo of fish bc I've been so back and forth about what I want to put in my tank once it's cycled.

Anyways, what do you's think of this combo:
4 Congo tetras
4 serpae tetras
4 electric green glo tetras
6 Cory's
1 gold gourami
1 swordtail or 1 bolivian ram

Would this combo be good? Is it to many for a 30 gallon tank?

I would do a pair of Bolivian rams
with 8-10 peaceful tetras (one species)
6 cories
That was my original plan for my 30 (barbs instead of tetras though)

I can do barbs instead of tetras with a bolivian ram?

Yes. For the cories sake, do a less nippy breed like black ruby barbs.

I heard that the black ruby barb can be in the same tank as some tetras. The one that I heard was the black skirt tetra. Is this true?

I heard that the black ruby barb can be kept in the same tank with tetras like the black skirt tetra. Is this true?

Haha that's happened to me before. To answer your question, I'm not sure.
