    I have a 40 g light-moderately planted tank with an aqueon 200 and aquaclear 70 filters on it. My tank just still seems really emPty with the following fish

    1 blue gourami
    5 sunset platys
    2 dojo loaches
    11 neon tetras
    3 guppies

    Do i have enough room for another school of tetras or different type of fish or is my tank somewhat too full?

    If you have male and female mixes of the platys and guppies, you are soon going to be running into a population problem as they reproduce.

    As it stands now, you could double up on your neons or introduce another small school of small tetras.

    I would still be interested in getting a ram or possibly a pair. Anyone think that would work too?

    I do not think so. Rams usually require 20g per pair.

    But he has a 40g. I have a pair of GBR in my 33g with a pair of angels and they are all living peacefully. Granted I lucked out with the angels pairing up and there are still some agression flare ups but nothing serious.

    So, why wouldn't a pair work in his 40 gallon then?

    Yes to both really. You have good filtration and if you keep up with weekly water changes, no problem.

    Only possible cause of concern here would be the gourami. Never kept these so no idea how they'd get along with rams. Apart from that, size and filtration wise there seems to bbe plenty of room
    3 potted plants and 6 strings of plastic do not make a planted tank!

    And one more word to Zonky........You just got this tank cycled so once again.......do not forget to stock slowly. I would not add any more fish for about 2 weeks. Are you checking the parmeters for ammonia, nitrites, nitrates?

    I've checked the water parameters about every other day and i had 0 ammonia/0 nitrite. I'm doing my first water change with fish today as well. I've tried to not go overboard with stocking but my g/f has been super impatient with thia process.
