It'll be fine ^_^ my striped kuhlis are in a 10g quarantine and they have plenty of space for getting their wiggle on!

My Ph is 7.4-7.6. I have 6 Kuhli Loaches with 7 Bloodfin Tetras in a 20 gallon. The temperature is always over 78. Finally I have a pair of German Blur Ram that also require the higher temp.

I recommend you start with the Bloodfins now (with the new cycle) and later add the Kuhlis that are a bit more sensitive.

If they are happy in a 20 gal i might get 4 or 5 for my tank then thanks! And are all tetras hardy enough for the cycle? I was thinking about getting a group of neons or maybe some other kind as a schooling group of fish, I'll definitely look into bloodfins thats a pretty sweet name

Bloodfins are one of the few tetras that can handle the higher temperature for a long time. And yes, they handle the new cycle or partial cycle. Mine did and have had them for over a year already.

Research is your best friend. Don't just follow what we tell you.

Also, a school means the need for more than 5. Don't get 4 or 5 Kuhli Loaches. You have the tank size, give them what they need to be happy.

Oh, and hint from research: Kuhli's are more carnivore than omnivores

Don't worry about "fixing" the Ph. Just get fish that are comfortable in the Ph that your tap water has. Now the temp is really important at times like for Kuhli's, Bloodfins, and Germans. Hence, why my Guppy tank has a heater during winter at the lowest setting and comes off around now.
