Question Next step in stocking? Ideas for a 20 gallon

Hey ya'll i've got a question about stocking, I've have had my tank for about four months now and she is fully cycled. I've got a decent stock in there right now with four glo danios,two of the glo tertas(bred from the white skirt species),Five neon tertas,five X ray pristella tertas, and one red flower shrimp. While the stock is great i just look and find something missing like a living room with no center piece to tie it all in.

Specs of the tank

Marineland Penguin 150 over hang filter
Marineland Prefect flow undergravel filter
LED light with 3 Blue moon
Marineland Maxijet 400 as a powerhead
whisper air pump for bubble wand and air stone

So my question is what in your opinion should be my next step in the stocking or should i even stock anymore fish?

Recap of stock for ease of look up
2 glo tetras
5 neon's
5 X rays
4 Glo Danios(2 blue 2 red)
1 flower shrimp

You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.

if anything, I'd bump up the number of each species of fish to 6. Many of those fish like a group.

If the tank was a more natural color, the colors on the fish would be much brighter.
