Default Stocking Ideas

I have 5 species of schooling fish currently together in one 40 gallon planted tank. I would like to split them into two 40 gallon tanks.

Any suggestions on which 3 should stay in the original tank, and which 2 should move to the new 40 gallon tank? I currently have two canister filters on the one tank, so will move one over to the new tank.

Hyphessobrycon pulchripinnis (Lemon Tetra)

Inpaichthys kerri (Blue Kerri Tetra)

Hemigrammus bleheri (Rummy Nose Tetra)

Chilodus punctures (Spotted Headstander)

Gasteropelecus Levi's (Silver Hatchetfish)

It's up to you. All great fish.
I would not put the headstander & hatchetfish together only because they're not colorful.
