75 gallon stocking

I was wondering if I could get everyone's opinion on stocking a 75 gallon aquarium. I was hoping to have: 2 German blue rams, 7 angelfish, 20 neon tetras, 3 guppies, 1 bristle nose pleco. Is this too much? I know it's a lot of angels so I may need to take a few out (but I love them all D=); but assuming that this isn't overstocked, I will wait and see if aggression develops. Thanks :)

Looks like a pretty good list of fish to stock in your 75 gallon to me! :) Perhaps a awesome school of rainbowfish would be cool too.

*EDIT**

Oh yeah, you want to take out the neons, guppies, though, because angels are known to eat neons and small fish, so you will have to get a different bigger species tetra and maybe platies/mollies.

I love rainbowfish but I had a bad experience with some (boesemani) rainbows nipping my angelfish's fins pretty bad. Maybe it was a fluke; some people seem to have them together just fine. I know the male guppy and neons maybe be in danger but they are in with the angelfish right now and they are fine. I'm gonna take the risk and if they become food that's fine (that sounds terrible to say xD), in that case maybe ill try a school of dwarf neon rainbowfish or Colombian/Congo tetras. :)

Haha, I know some people keep neons with angels, so thought I'd test it out, at least, since neons are very pretty fish!

If it doesn't work out, fresh food for my angels :D.

Expensive snacks if eaten haha. Those neons, if eaten, one of them will be like: "How the hell do I get out?!? I thought this big angelfish was nice!!" q:
