240 litres is approximately 65 gallons.
you have lots of options!

It looks like you have already chosen your centerpiece fish - the rams and gourami

you can add a schooling fish for the middle of the tank - Any tetras or rasboras.
and corydoras or loaches for the bottom of the tank.

the Great thing with your setup is the rams and gourami are compatible with many fish!

Pandas would be great and you could get a minimum of 5 easily. I agree with above posters that tetras would make great schools to offset your centerpiece species. I would go with something like serpaes (more than 8) or rummynose (more than 12) to start off with.

Is your tank large enough to support 4 angels if they pair off?

That's stupid. If you get 4 Angels be ready to have about a 60l on hand to put the pair in. Or Just buy 2 which i recommend.

If you don't have another home for the Angels after two pair off, yes, that is the best option.
It's not a stupid suggestion if you don't have another tank.

You said that you have a gourami, the Angels can have a problem bullying the gourami IMO

Sorry didn't mean too act negative but I think 4 angels would be great if you have a breeder. Or you could just hope your angels are beast at protecting and protect your babies. Sorry though

I think that stock list sounds great. You could easily go up to 10 panda cory if you want to. You'll have fun with that tank. Pearl gourami make excellent centerpiece fish and are among the most mellow of all the gouramis I have kept- I'm currently (temporarily) housing 10 adults in a 75 and they actually behave quite well- although I would NOT recommend this.
