Hey!!! I am new to this, but I have properly cycled my tank and I am finally ready to stock it! I am thinking of doing this:
6 Fancy guppies
8 Cardinal tetras
3-4 Cories
And finally an angel

I am just hoping that this isn't too much, and I would also like to know what type of shrimp I could possibly put in here as well. I would like them to help out with the maintenance

BTW I have caves and live plants in there as well if that makes a difference (It's also a long tank)
Thank you in advance!

Welcome to Fishlore!
Your cories will need to be in a school of at least 6 of their own species. An angelfish will not work in that small of a tank, they can get up to 6" long and tall. Instead, I would recommend a German Blue Ram or a Kribensis.

I'm going to add that the kribensis is the fish in my avatar. She's got a nice pink spot on the belly.

The Kribensis looks really cool, Got any other suggestions for a centerpiece? Also is it already too crowded for shrimp?
