Would 2 rams be too much for a 20g?

I have a 20 gallon long tank, with 5 cory cats and 5 neon tetras (I'll probably get 2-3 more neons). I use to have a German Blue Ram, but he died. Could I get a male/female pair for the tank, or would that be too much? What about 2 females?

Sounds fine to me. I would get a pair, but two females would work also.

I would also prefer a pair. I'm just nervous about aggression towards each other and the corys. Thanks.

Just give them plenty of cover, I've kept corys and rams together without any problem, the rams can get defensive when they have eggs but I've never seen them really bully anything except for their own kind. Line of sight breaks will help avoid a bad scenario.
