Stocking ideas 36g bow front

I've got a cycled tank that I am currently stocking. Here's what I have so far

1 red tailed black shark
3 honey gourami (1 male, 2 female)
2 Blue Rams
2 king tiger plecos

I want to add something mid range, maybe even schooling. I am also thinking of adding a school of Black Cory (schultzii) if I can ever find someone selling them. If I do, my tank will be pretty well stocked, so any mud range fish I'd add would need to be small.

Tank has two Aqueon Quietflow 30 hang on filters, so I have plenty of filtration.

I'm looking forward to hearing what you all have to say.

4.5 inches. They are less than 2 now. In January I will move them to a 70 gallon tank if they are getting too big.

Plecos carry such a heavy bioload, I'd almost certainly move them. For a schooling fish, rasboras would look nice with the gouramis, or maybe rummynoses to complement the rams.

I've been using Aqadvisor.com to help determine my stocking levels. It takes bioload into consideration. But I'll be testing the tank regularly and cleaning and changing the water weekly.
