35 Gallon Tank Stocking

I have a 35 Gallon tank with a Tetra whisper 45EX HOB and a Tetra Whisper 20 EX HOB. It will be a slight to mildy planted tank so take that into consideration. My current list is 5 Hi Fin Lyretail Swordtails, 6 Zebra Danios, 4 SterbasCory Cats, 5 Green Cobra Guppy, and 8 Cardinal Tetra. According to AqAdvisor my tank is only 73 % stocked but i think 28 fish (although they will remain fairly small) is the right amount for a 35 Gallon tank. My filter filtration rate is 85 % and that is based off of AqAdvisor only counting that the filter is 75% effective, and I have read that anything above 80 % is good. Also, my weekly suggested water change is 40 % which i will do, so with that being said what does everyone think.... any ideas, suggestions or anything I need to know?

I would agree and say you're fully stocked. I do 20-30% weekly water changes and at least one 50% each month. It really depends on how much you feed and how effective your filtration is.
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.
