Stocking 55 gallon tank?

Hi guys! I was gonna get a 46 gallon tank but at the same price I can get a 55 gallon:
Top FinŽ 55 Gallon Starter Kit - Fish - Sale Category - PetSmart

so now for stocking. Here is my 46 gallon stocking list:
8 Cardinal tetras
1 Pearl gourami
7 Cherry barbs
8 Cories
2 cockatoo cichlids
2 german blue rams
5 rummy nose tetras


This is what im thinking for a 55 gallon:
10 Cardinal tetras
1 Pearl gourami
10 Cherry barbs
8 Cories
2 cockatoo cichlids
2 german blue rams
8 rummy nose tetras
1 leleupi

What else can I do? Im thinking more top dwellers (not hatchet fish please) as the gourami is the only one. it will be planted by the way! thnx

For top dwelling, you can go with killies or zebras. I actually put some (all green) glofish (which are modified zebra danios if you're unfamiliar) in mine and they all dart around the top level of my tank... Pretty fun to watch, especially with their vibrant color.

I have a female yellow bellied slider with 2 goldfish and one blue gourami. She gets along with them very well. They came with the tank when I bought it...

It depends on the turtle. Most turtles see fish as food...
