What are your water paremeters now after two weeks (ammonia, nitrite)? If they're OK, add another fish. It's been many years since I started a smaller tank, but when setting up my larger tanks I add 5 or 6 fish, use the cycle that day, and monitor the paremeters. After a week, add a few more fish, monitor paremeters, and so on.
Yers, two tetras will look lonely, but they'll soon have company so don't worry. But you're correct about the cover, tetras don't like feeling exposed.They should have plants, are you intending to add some plants? Some floating fern (Ceratopteris species) would work fine, it grows very fast and in doing so is working to stabalize the water so a double benefit.
