Have I provided enough plants for my sorority?

I am super excited because my females from Aquabid arrived today in pristine condition, making my final sorority count 7. I have 5 Petco girls that finished their 2 week quarantine today, plus the other two which I will not be quarantining.
So, I went over to Petco to purchase some plants and I was lucky to find that they had several large ones to choose from. I went with 3 large swords, ludwigia, rotala indica, and what appears to be moneywort. I am not sure because it wasn't labeled. I also purchased 3 peppered cories to throw into the mix.
Now, I am at the point where I am ready to begin adding the girls. I'll be doing the all at once method. However, before I do I wanted to make sure that the planting is dense enough to prevent too much fighting between them.

That's a beautiful tank!

I think there's enough planting but perhaps you could add more shelter? Caves and such?

Thank you, I've been planning it for awhile.

Yup, I can definitely agree that the tank would benefit from some caves. I like the look of the cichlid stone caves, maybe I will get some of those. Do you think it is still sufficient enough to go ahead and introduce all of the girls?

I think it'll be fine if you keep an eye on them. Good luck!

If you're talking about the chilid caves from petco they have super rough edges. Like I don't know how any fish gets in and out with out getting hurt.

Yes, yes you have. But you may wanna add some color in there, like fake plants (plastic ones)? Just a suggestion! Oh and add a few more shelter pieces. Other than that, it's beautiful!

The cichlid caves that I have seen didn't look too rough, but perhaps I could sand them down some?

On the outside they aren't they are nice and smooth but when you run your fingers around the inside that's where it's rough. Just check them and I believe you could sand them and rinse them really well or get a tube of aquarium silicone and put a thin layer on the inside to smooth it out and let them dry for a day or two.
