First tank (freshwater)

So first off, I have been continuously researching whenever I have spare time and yes I know about the nitrogen cycle. Do you think this stock list would work in a 54 later tank and if not what would be the minimum size.

5 rummy nose tetras
5 green neon tetras
5 pygmy corydoras
3 male Endlers livebearers
1 male honey gourami

I have researched my water and it is fine for these.
Also I am open to fish suggestions and combinations other than my own. Also, if this works what order would you recommend adding them in to the tank and how heavily planted should it be? Any special requirements like more hiding places. I already know about sand substrate for the Corydoras so they don't hurt their barbels.

I'd increase each fish species by one or two and skip the single gourami. I don't like the idea of a "centerpiece" fish. I think fish are much happier with others of their own species around.

so 6 of each tetra species and 6 pygmies and the 3 Endlers would work then! yay! In that case could I add anything else once the tank matures. Also would nerve snails be a good idea because I know tetras with shrimp don't work. Thx for the feedback!
