Celestial Pearl Danio

I'm thinking about getting these for my 20 gal long tank,

Would a school of 9 of them be large enough? That's about as many as I can afford with the shipping included, but if they wouldn't do go I'd scrap the plan of getting them.

Right now I feed my crew New Life Spectrum betta formula, Fluval Bug Bites, and Frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp. Would the Danio need anything else? The site says they are omnivores, and the diet I feed tends to be high protein for the betta.

My water is somewhere around 7.4 and 7.6 PH, will that be O.K. for them? I know that they prefer more acidic water but monkeying around with the PH scares the heck out of me, I'd probably never keep it stable.

My tank is established, and heavily planted along with having some hard scape spread throughout, so plenty of hiding places. Cinnabar the beta is pretty laid back and doesn't take much interest in the cory cats.
