40B Ideas?

I am planning on upgrading my 20 gallon to a 40 gallon breeder over the summer, so I am beginning my planning now. Right now my 20 gallon only has 7 lemon tetra in it and I feel like the 40 gallon would look a little empty with only 7 Lemon Tetra. I am thinking about adding 7 Colombian Tetra and 9 Rummynose Tetra to the stocking list for the 40. Does that sound crowded?

Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me

S.A. Flooded Jungle (20 gallon)
A heavily planted tank. Inhabitants include: 7 Lemon Tetra, 1 Whiptail Catfish, and MTS.

I'd probably add to the Lemons and do a larger shoal of Rummy Nose. Like 12-15 and leave it at that. Maybe some cories as well.

Dont really have anything to add about stocking, but I just love the dimensions of the 40B. Such a nice look to it.

30 gallon:
6 Harlequin Rasbora
2 Bolivian Rams (1M/1F)
4 Corydoras Melanistius
2 Peppered Cory
1 Sunburst Platy (M)
1 Guppy (M)

I had Colombian tetras before they are neat fish. Couple of things I learned about them is they can be fin nippers on occasion. The other thing is at feeding time they are like little piranhas. They can move so fast to get the food it was hard for me to get food for.the other fish in the tank at the time. LoL
