Stocking questions

Ok so I have a 20l with three female bettas one zebra danio that I'm going to get rid of a bn pleco and three khuli loaches...I am planning on upping the number of kuhlis to five...and I was thinking about getting some dwarf rainbows and maybe a gbr or a gbr with another type of schooling fish...I like chili rasboras a lot so I might do those with a gbr or maybe some cardinal tetras...but I really like the rainbows...so what would you guys recommend

So the stock would be 3 female bettas, 5 kuhlis, and a BNP? With that, your bioload is already fairly sizable (plecos, they're poop machines). So, I wouldn't add much more. Chili rasbora may work, you could get a small school of them. Dwarf neon rainbows are super active, I honestly wouldn't recommend them for your current setup.

I was thinking about maybe retiming the pleco as well...if I did that could I get a German blue ram

They should be. Unless you have aggressive females
