55g stocking plan

completely an oversone thread but as each tank is slightly diff i am here for my go at it
Tank has been cycled and slowly been adding fish. before I round out the stock wanted to get some feedback/ideas for the final pieces.

Currently:
6 zebra danio
10 cardinal tetras
4 false juli corys
4 bronze corys

6 stalks of water wisteria
3 amazon swords
3 Anubis nana
2 java fern
2 crypts lutea

Would like to do another schooling fish and one/two centerpiece fish.
Right now the corys and danios add a LOT of movement as they can't stop for a second

To pick from and add ?
Angels ?
Gourami ?
Rams ?
Rummynose tetra ?
Shrimps ?

I'd say adding a pair of rams, and 8 rumynose would finish off nicely! Wait for your tank to be running about another month, as both are very sensitive

Pearl gourami, angel or rams. I wouldn't get rainbows because you already have a lot of fast moving fish. So the rams or gourami would be more stationary. With the rams you have to be careful. Make sure your water is stable before adding them.
