I'd skip the gourami, as the rams will do just fine as the centerpiece fish. I would up the serpae tetras, and then do a school of corries, or another tetra. With schooling fish, it's best to go with fewer, larger schools, than many smaller schools.

I don't think the Gourami would work. I tried one a few years ago with tetras and he was too agressive for them. Could have just been a one-off tho.

That might be too many different schools tetras. With your plants it would reduce the amount of tank space they can swim in.

I would stick with two schools of tetras

Maybe one more cory too as they do best in schools of 6 or more

Just my $0.02

ok so should i just up the 2 schools to 8 each ? i was thinking sepae and neons then drop the gourami and add another cory ?

by the way what school swims up top because the serpaes right now stay more to the lower half of the top ? thats the only reason i was thinking of adding the gourami because they swim up top....
