Do I have room in my tank for a small school of L. Dadiburjori?

Hi all, here's a picture of my tank for reference: http://i.imgur.com/U2MaD9N.jpg

It's a 20g long with a fluval c2 filter and a large sponge filter rated for 20g. I'd say it's medium-planted, but I am planning on a adding a tad bit more (going to attempt a carpet of staurogyne!)

Here's my current stock:
x8 CPDs
x8 corydoras habrosus (3 are currently in QT, 5 in tank pictured)
x3 sparkling gourami (all 3 are currently in QT)
x1 marble wood shrimp (atya scabra)
x1 horned nerite snail
x1 zebra nerite snail
~x15 red cherry shrimp
x5 MTS (almost forgot about them)

Including the gouramis and cories that are in QT, AqAdvisor says I'm 67% stocked. Looking to add a school of 7 or so Labuca Dadiburjori. Does anyone know much about this fish? I SURE hope they're top-layer swimmers, I don't need any more mid-to-bottom swimmers haha. I remember in one of Rachel O'Leary's videos she recommends L. Dadiburjori with CPDs and as their colors contrast nicely I thought I'd try to have a go.

Does anyone thinking adding a school of these with the current stock would be okay? I do about 25% pwc once a week.

I think it will be fine with what you currently have.
Found a video of a school of these: [youtube]

Fine as in okay to add? I did find some videos that says they're top level schooling fish, yay! Think I could get away with 8 or should I keep it at 7 for a small school?

Yes, fine to add. 7 or 8, I don't think it matters. Not sure if this species is in AqAdvisor. Not much larger than a CPD.
