your thought? anything you'd change or add?
I see nothing wrong in terms of compatibility but I think all this will overload the tank a bit, space-wise, so I would suggest some removals. If you get the cardinals, a large group as you are suggesting is wise. They will grow to 1.5 inches and can live 10 years if healthy--and this always means in soft acidic water.
The Rasbora are fine, they will remain a bit higher up in the tank than the cardinals so that is a good match. I would get 7 though, this species also is better in larger numbers.
I would leave out the Honey Gourami. The Scarlet Badis is a hit and miss, they should be in groups but males can be feisty to each other. Unless you can be certain of getting a pair, I wold not get two in case both are males, one will be the loser in time. A group, say 5-6 would be better.
Corys are fine. I would hold off on the Bristlenose until the tank is established.
