Honestly, if your tank is mature, you should be fine. If this is a new tank go to the lfs and get some safe start by tetra. It is the nitrifying bacteria that is in water. Feed sparingly, too much food will be what destroys your tank. To be on the safe side every few days test your water. These are small fish and should not overwhelm your tank as long as you do not over feed.

They should all be able to adapt to the temp. The one inch rule of thumb is mostly used for people new to aquariums and it keeps them from overstocking from the start. The extra bio media will help you keep more fish. Just make sure you add fish slowly, wait a few weeks for the bacteria to stablize before you add any more if you plan on adding more. Remember the more fish the more importent water changes are (25-30% per week).
