Stocking suggestions for 56 gallon column

I wanted to see if this would actually work or not. my tank is heavily planted, with a Fluval U4 filter, so I think in terms of filtration should be okay.

12 head and tail light tetras, 5 denison barbs, and a school of 6-10 cories.

would that be too much?

I just want to point out that the Denison Barbs would probably appreciate having more swimming room, length-wise. I believe 4 ft is generally considered the minimum for them.
