New 30 Gallon - Stocking Thoughts & Suggestions Please

Here is my new 30 gallon freshwater tank. I had a 70 gallon saltwater tank for 5 years, but have been without a tank the last few years. This is my first attempt at getting back into the hobby This tank has been setup for about 3 weeks now, and so far so good!

In Tank :
2x Dalmatian Lyretail Mollies
7x Neon Tetras
1x Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami
1x Flame Dwarf Gourami
1x GloFish Tetra
1x Black Kuhlii Loach
2x Ghost Shrimp

Here is a pic with the day light on :

I am running a Marineland Emperor 350 HOB and a National Geographic 30" Deluxe LED Programmable Light (not sure best times to program, kinda winging it as of now).

Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated

It's cycled, have been doing steady testing with API Master Kit. Used API quick start and API Stress Zyme...all tests have leveled out

I would up the school of Kuhli Loaches since they're highly social fish. When kept singly or in tiny groups (3-) they're very reclusive and not seen near as much as they could with a school!
