Ok, final stocking list.

AquaAdvisor still thinks your tank is a 41G...
I would not put quite that many schoolers in, at least not to start with. I would start with 10 Cardinals and 8 Rasbora. Once you have finished stocking all the other fish you can go back and add more Cardinals/Harleys if you find that your tank and maintenance schedule are coping.
Also, with the kribensis, you cannot just get a male and female and throw them together. You will have to get a group of juveniles and wait for 2 to pair up, and then rehome the rest. They are easy to sex so 1m and 2-3f should be sufficient.

I'm going to leave out the Kribensis for now. That should free up plenty of room for the schools.

That sounds good -- and then once you've stocked it the rest of the way, you can monitor the nitrate levels and how many water changes you have to do, etc, and decide from there whether or not your tank has room for a feature fish. :)
If you don't have room for a pair of Kribs, you could always get just one Ram or something. Or a Gourami, or Bristlenosed Pleco.
