This is such a new tank, I'd hold off at least another 2 weeks before adding more fish. Be sure that your tank is cycled and steady.

What size tank is this?

If it were my tank, I wouldn't add anything else, except to bump my tetras up to 6. They actually do better with 8, but you don't have the room, in my opinion.

With the neons, I would bump up the tetras and then call it a day.

You could always see how that works for a while, then add more if it seems you can and the bioload is being managed well.
