I love Cardinals. I have 6 in my planted 5G, and they are very pretty. They have a lot of personality, and come out a lot more (and are more active) than the previous Neons I had. I, personally think they are more pretty too.
If you do decide to get Cards, get a lot of live plants to make them feel comfortable. I have probably 9 or 10 plants in my 5G, and they are out almost all the time.
As for your stocking, that sounds ok. But, as stated, the Common Pleco will reach 18" long, and will poop as much as a 30" fish. Your looking at a large tank with a good filtration unit to house one. Maybe a Clown Pleco instead? They stay relatively small (4"), but are very reclusive. I have one in my 30G, and probably see him once every 2/3 weeks, when I have to move around my driftwood.
