With 6 you could have 3 of one species and 3 of another. In my experience, cories get along well with each other but they do have a preference for their own species when given the opportunity. In my 90g currently I have 3 C. panda, 3 C. similis and 9 C. pygmaeus. While they chum around together, about 90% of the time the pandas are together in one group, the similis are together in another group, and the pygmies are scattered around but 2-3 of them usually together. Similar happens in my 115g where I have 3 of some and 5 of other species; "together" usually means the same species.
Just one comment on the pandas, for some reason they are not one of the "easy" corydoras. If your tank is established (been running a while) and stable with respect to water parameters and quality, they should be fine.
I also agree with an earlier post, add 1-2 more of each of the tetras; a group of 6 of each species works better (from the fish's perspective that is
