As you have them, I would leave the neons. They are not expensive, so I would get another three to total nine. They may be fine. Lots of plants for dim light, chunks of bogwood, etc., floating plants.
This is not a planted tank, just gravel and fake decor. I have a good amount of fake plants and a couple of pieces of decor for the fish to hide in. I can add a few pieces of bogwood (is that driftwood I buy at Petsmart?) for more hiding places when I go this weekend to pick up more fish.
