The cardinals and rummy’s are both known to like it a little warmer that the others 78-82+ where the others will do better in the 75-78 range typically. Danios sometimes even lower70s. They all overlap a bit but I think the danios would be furthest out of there element.
Regardless of what you go with. While it’s tempting to have a lot of variety, One or two large schools tend to bring a lot more activity than having 4 each of many fish. The more in the school the safer they feel and I think it encourages schooling better. I do believe I’ve read before the rummynose do better in 4ft plus tanks as well since they are very active.
I think ideally you do two schools of the rasboras and either the neons/cardinals.
As for the rest:
Cories- fine they really school nice so even doing 8 each of the cories, neons and Rasboras
Nerites/hilstream loaches. I would cut these numbers back only because I worry there may not be enough for them all to eat. I personally have not had my Nerites go after wagers or veggies so I do not know if they often Accept prepared foods.
So I would say ideally maybe 2-3 Nerites with 1 hilstream loach. It’s always easier to add later on if you see fit then it is trying to keep everyone fed.
