If I order these online should I order all at once? We'll be talking about introducing 15 fish. Is that the max or can I reduced the 5 of each species and add another species for a little more diversity?

For a 55G three species works well. I would not do four or more unless you go to a 75G tank.

Introduce 8 of each and remove extra males as they mature to end up with 15 fish.
