Talking Its me Again 55 Gallon

For those who have been with the forum for a while, might remember the thread of whether or not I would buy a 55 gallon tank, welll... anyway i ended up not getting the tank. I decided to wait and make sure that i really liked the tank. Ive kept myself entertained with my 20 gallon, 1 gallon, and a 5 gallon tank. But the other day i went to pick some neon tetras, when there it was, the tank that has been taunting me for 7 months. I went looked at it and again fell in love with it again. So i went home with my little tetras. I started daydreaming about the tank, which fish i could put in it and how awesome it would be. SO this is the list i came up with:

5 guppies
5 Platies
20 Neon Tetras
2 Bloodfin Tetras
6 Pristella Tetras
1 Bushynose Pleco
1 Swordtails
3 Endler's Livebearers

So what do you guys think? Should I get it? Is this a good stocking list? Can i get more ? Am i overstocked? or do you want to recommend other species.

Increase the bloodfins, they are characins (tetras) and will be better in a group of 6 (or more) like all tetras.

I assume you know that the livebearers will mean hundreds of fry if there are impregnated females or males and females.

I say go for it, a 55 gallon tank opens so many doors as you can see, and its not like your doing it on a whim, 7 months is a long time to be after a tank.
