Stocking change help

So I have 5 cory cats and 7 pristella tetras in a 20 gallon tall tank. I recently discovered that one of my corys had fin rot. Now that is from poor water quality (even with 50% weekly water changes) or a fin nip turned infection (the tetras would swarm the corys and try to eat their food and I only have the 1 sick fish).

If I were to get sell my tetras what should I replace them with? I like the look of dwarf gourami but I only hear bad things about their health.
Nowhere in town sells honey gouramis but I might be able to get the to order them in.
Would a single molly be ok? Or some female platys? I looked at ember tetras but I don't have the budget for $3.50 per fish and needing a large school of them.
I'm also trying to keep the bioload lower.



*NOTE I won't do anything until i'm done medicating the tank.

Sorry ---- water parameters

Nitrite 0
Nitrate under 20 and will probably go a bit lower with next water change
Ph between 7.0 -7.5
