No prob. The footprint is the dimensions of the bottom of the tank. Rams like to be on the bottom level of the tank, so by knowing the footprint, we can help you to more in deciding which species would be a good fit. Some fish need horizontal swimming room and some need access to the surface.
Do you know about cycling the tank to build up beneficial bacteria that break down the ammonia porduced in fish waste?

Here is a link about cycling:
The (almost) Complete Guide and FAQ to Fishless Cycling

Ok, those dimensions are fine for a pair of rams or just 1. Just checking.
With rams, I personally recommend a school of rymmy-nose tetras, neons, cardinals, or ember tetras because they all have lovely colors and are peaceful. There are other options too.
