Your going to want more cover in there. What I have in my 26g sorority is a ton of plants and a piece of driftwood with some java moss and java fern attached to it. It works perfectly. My suggestion is to cover about 70% of the substrate and have floating plants for cover while they are at the top and you will be just fine! Plus the live plants help with cycling and keeps water quality pretty good without the tank being cycled, which I assume yours will not be when you add the girls.
Just a suggestion, good luck!
