Stocking 55 gallon tank?

I will be setting up my 55 gal in March/April and trying to come up with a stocking list. I've came up with the following so far...

10 giant danios
13 zebra danios
10 black skirt tetras
8 hatchet fish
13 neon tetras
1 dwarf pleco

How do the above list sound?

I would re-think the Giant Danio; they attain 4 inches, some sources say 5-6 inches, and with the other mentioned smaller fish this might not work.

Are you aware of our fish profiles section? Second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top--you might find some other ideas there.

I'd rething the Giant Danios too, also you dont have any bottom feeders besides the pleco. Maybe a school of cory cats or a group of zebra loaches.

Make sure you cover the top of your tank well...from what I've heard, the hatchet fish loooove to jump.
