Bolivian rams or not

I've just set up and cycled a 90g tank. At the minute it's got 7 harlequin Rasbora and 4 panda cories. I'm thinking of taking them up to 10 of each and adding 3 honey gourami.
I've read so many conflicting things about Bolivians. Would they be ok with the fish I have and how many/what sex should I get?

That all sounds fine. You could get 6 Bolivians. Sex doesn't matter so much with them. Unless its 5m to 1f or really lopsided

That's a big tank. How long has it been cycled?

I would think you could add the harley ,cory and gouramis all at once to get numbers up safely , and then do the Bolivian rams altogether in a week or two.
Sounds like a nice tank.

It's only just cycled and it took forever, at least it was planted so it looked good. I moved the existing fish from my old tank last weekend so I'm letting it have an adjustment period before I add any more. I always get nervous about adding too many fish to a new tank.
