29g stocking

While I'm saving for a bigger tank (it's solid oak stand and hood so will take a year or so before I can afford it) I wanted to add a few more fish to my 29g.

At the minute all I've got in there are 5 harlequin Rasbora and 15-20 cherry shrimp.

I was thinking of adding 5 peppered cories and possibly another small school of 6 lemon tetra.

Would that be ok or is the tank too small for 2 schools and would I be better off increasing the number of harlequins instead?

Not sure what size filter you have, so I assumed an Aquaclear 30 and then an Aquaclear 50. According to AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor you should have enough filtration for all the fish you mentioned, but it will be close with the AQ30.

My filter is a fluval u3 so filtration isn't an issue.
I was just wondering if 2 schools would be ok in a tank that size or if I should stick with one school and make it bigger
