What about hatchets or cories?

Don't hatchets jump? I don't have a lid on my tank because it gets water stains and the light doesn't shine through as good.
I had cories but i sent them to another member to get my rams.
Are there any top Dwellers? Or another centerpiece fish? Thanks!!!

You could try pencilfish. Or another good centerpiece could be a headstander, though I'm not very familiar with them.

I agree that pencilfish would be a good option. Yes, I have heard that hatchets jump, so they would probably not be the best choice for you. I also agree that you do not have space for another ram pair.
If you want corys again, I would suggest 4-6 pygmy corys, or else panda or julii since they need room to swim and avoid the rams.
Did I see an oto too? You certainly have room for an oto trio.
But definitely look into pencil fish.

Would 6 black phantom tetras work?

Yes, but be sure to watch the gender ratios since males tend to fight in smaller tanks. This is one of the only tetras that you can keep in pairs. I would recommend getting just a pair or else getting 1 male and a handful of females. Don't get more than 2 males for a tank that size, imo.

The males have a bigger dorsal fin. The females have a red adipose fin.
