Fish additions to an ADA Mini-M?

So I have a planted ADA Mini-M and after much fun growing and cycling, I'm very happy to report that I am now very successfully supporting life in my little tank!

I currently have six neon tetras in there (not my top choice but hey its what I got and they're healthy) and recently added four cherry shrimp (what a pain to find locally!).

Can I add a honey gourami or more tetras...maybe four? I'd love to have a honey gourami in there but I don't want anyone gasping for air.

Right now I have a Red Sea Nano but I'm not particularly happy with it's flow so when my Tom Rapids Mini Canister comes in the mail, that's what I'll be running.

I really feel like a honey gourami would make a fantastic centerpiece for my tank but I want to do what's best for the fish. Thanks in advance to all those with insight!

I wouldn't think that a little honey would over tax your system.

Of course I'm all about the little little fish for nano tanks, like white clouds! often over looked, but in a nice planted tank they are stunning!

I was all about nano-sized fish too but I got myself in a situation where I kinda 'owed' my local fish store owner some business. She's done special orders for me before but I didn't want to strain our already strange relationship. I'm 90% happy with the neons and will consider other fish in the future.
