Does a 12 gallon long count as a nano?

So, since I delved into planted tanks 7 years ago, after leaving the world of larger tanks and voracious cichlids, I've always used nano's. I enjoyed not having to get my armpits wet to perform maintenance on my aquarium. Also, I found the work load to be lighter. Even though many said that keeping a smaller tank stabilized would be difficult, I found it easier to stay on top of. So, after going from a five, a seven, and a ten even, after recently moving to a larger place, I've just setup a 12 gallon long Mr. Aqua.

I decided to go with an AquaticLife Edge LED 36", and a Fluval G6 I was running on the 7 gal. Soil is Netlea Lambo, and co2 hasn't been setup yet. The inhabitants are a dozen cherry's, half a dozen Amano's, and four cpd's. I might do Pygmy corys, but I'd like to grow my cpd group. BTW, has anybody noticed a difference in behavior with cpd's when the group gets larger? I heard they don't school in the traditional sense, but instead "shoal", so I wonder if they shoal'd to a greater degree in larger numbers. Anyway, if any have had experience in setting up this tank, please chime in with he pointers.
