German blue ram tank mates!

I have just added a German blue ram to my tank and I want them to be the centre piece fish of of my aquarium. Which fish are the best tank mates to add with them? I already have cherry barbs, Cory catfish and Plecos. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

Alrighty then, rams prefer planted tanks so that's good. What else you can now depends on your school size and pleco species

I believe you get a type of small tetra species like neons or flames. A school of 6. I wouldn't add any more bottom feeders because rams are territorial

I'd say your well stocked as it is, 2 Pleco's in that size tank is going to be messy messy, how many Cory's?
