I plan to heavily plant the tank, since I would love to maintain a big colony of shrimps.

I think an apisto pair would be the more troublesome of the 2. With 3 or 4 peacocks I'd suggest only 1 male. They're interesting fish...not tiny or shy, good color.

Are the female peacock gudgeons color more dull compared to males? Would a group of 3-4 females be better if I do a pair of apistogramma agassizi?

Females are just as colorful with the addition of a yellowish belly.

My experience with apistos is in species-only tanks for breeding.

Would one male apistogramma be too lonely?

Congrats, very pretty fish! Mine did make meals out of adult shrimp but the tank wasn't heavily planted at the time.

So I decided to update my stocking list.
6 Neon dwarf rainbow
8-10 sterbai cory or Julii (can I have both?)
6 threadfin rainbow
3 peacock gudgeon (females)
9 neon tetra
15 rummynose tetra
1 male or pair of apistogramma agassizi
Is it too over stock? Or will there be any kinds of issues?

You probably won't be able to find julii...stores mislabel trilineatus as julii on the regular. I would suggest going with a single species.

Julii have fine spots, trilineatus have wormy markings, that's the easiest way to separate the two. Trilineatus is a Peruvian cory so they will fit into your setup.
