stocking my new 75 gal

I picked up a 75 gal over the weekend off of Craigslist, I transferred from my 20 gal to 75 rocks, filter and fish. Water test is perfect so now its time to decide on what to add. (Best part)
Here is what I have
1-(f) blue ram
5(m/f) guppies
3 albino Cory
4 ghost shrimp

6-Texas cichlids these are juvenile(3 weeks old), going to be trading in once they get an inch.

Any suggests on what I can add?

Discus are schooling cichlids and need pristine water quality. They also do a lot better in a species only tank. Yes I'd do some GBR with another school of tetra ?

You might be able to get a pair of angels but don't add like neon tetra size fish

Adding angelfish would prevent your guppy population from getting out of hand. You could add some sterbai corydoras

Been thinking of making it a cold water tank and doing natives (I'm in Michigan) would be kinda cool too

I love that idea, would love to make it as natural as possible. Even if that means a fish get eatten sometimes.

Do you think sterbai would school with the albino? I have heard fish can be racist.
