Yes, and i would suggest changing to play sand. I use Quikrete Play Sand from Home Depot or Lowe's, a 50-pound bag for a few dollars will suffice.

You should increase some of your fish. Corys, tetra and hatchetfish are all shoaling fish, meaning they live in groups. In a 25g tank you have some room to handle this. Have a read of the profiles, they are under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. Each profile mentions appropriate numbers.

The Serpae Tetra are a problem though, check the profile on this.
