Tell me what you guys think of my stock list?
At the moment I have 10 pygmy corydoras and 2 rescued cardinal tetra. I plan on bringing the cardinals up to 12 or so and they cories up to 15 (more of both if you guys think it could work). When the tank is mature enough, I will be moving my 5 oto catfish. I want to add some peacock gudgeons, so 4 of them. And either a honey gourami or a paradise fish. A king betta could work too. Let me list it out.
15 pygmy corydoras
12-15 Cardinal Tetra
4-5 Peacock Gudgeon
1 Honey Gourami OR 1 Paradise Fish OR 1 King Betta
5 Otocinclus Catfish (once the tank is mature)

My GH is around 105 ppm
My ph sits around 7.4

I will lower gh with distilled water if necessary.
 
I would go with the honey gourami. Bettas are not community fish, and paradise fish prefer cooler water.

Peacock gudgeons - only one male unless the tank has a large floor space.


Hardness at 105 ppm = 5.9 dH which is fine for all the fish mentioned.

If you were to lower your GH I suggest you use RO water instead but looking at your reading I agree with @essjay your water is fine.
