    Ya, you can have rams. You might even want to move the fish you have in the 20 gallon to the 45 gallon and keep the rams in the 20.

    make sure your tank is well established and you keep really good condition of your water.

    german blues and electric blues are fairly sensitive to any fluctuations in your water parameters.

    I would first get more of your schooling species which are currently in inadequate numbers(tetras, cory, danios). if you still
    can accomodate rams, then you will likely have to rehome the cories because they can't stand the higher temperatures that rams will
    want. or else go for bolivian rams, which will do well at normal community temperatures. they aren't as gaudy as blue rams, and are drab as juveniles,
    but still are very beautiful in their own subtle way.
