20 gallon stocking help

So my 20 gallon high is now been stocked with the first wave
Which was:
6 loxozonus cories

I really would want a large school of smaller fish like tetras barbs danios or rasbora
I really want some thick schooling and nice colour!

Next I was wondering if it would be okay to get a electric blue and gold ram to accompany this one? Is that okay to do? Or over stocking..?

Thanks for all help!

A school of cardinal tetras or microrasboras should work in there.

Those are good options. No mention is made of parameters, so soft and acidic presumably.

To the question of more rams, no. A 20g is too small for anything but either a single ram or a bonded pair. Bonded pair means the two fish have selected each other; not every male will accept every female and vice versa, so you need to let them be in a group and pair off, then buy one of the bonded pairs if you want more than one.

BTW, you do realize the SAE (Siamese Algae Eater I assume) will get much too large for this tank, and very soon will need to be re-homed?
