Help me plan a stock

Ive heard many people love getting a new tank simply to plan on what fish to get. I love it too but im not to picky so why dont you pick them out. Here is what i want so far

Im a small schooling fish lover
75 gallon tank
Medium-heavily planted

8 zebra danios
4 bolivian rams
6 corydoras
3 otos
6 flame tetras
3 cherry barbs

Well thats my scheme, i dont know if i can fit anything else in there, if i can tell me. Please also note that there will be a minimum of 5 zebra danios, 2 bolivian rams, and 3 otos since i already have these fish, also there needs to be cories since i simple love them.

Be creative, make one up that contains what i just gave you (5 danios, 2 rams, 3 otos, 6 cories)

I would put some platys and some more types of tetras. Maby a plec or 2 cause your tank is big they will go huge.

na im no fan of plecs, plus they will compete with my otos for algae.... I like angelfish but otos are small enough to be eaten, any info on this?

cherries are too expensive to be risking them with the rams cories and everything else in my tank, id rather go with ghost.

The rams will, unfortunately, do. Blue rams are no exception from this.

Angels will not bother the otos but tetras will. What plec are you thinking of keeping? Not all plecs eat algae.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

are flame tetras agressive to otos? Will angels bother any of my other fish?

If you mean the columbian blue flame tetras i would say no cause we have 5 in our tank and they don't bother any other fish other then there own kind and its not that bad at all.They just sometimes chase each other a little and i have never seen any nipping or biting of any kind from them..

Marty, he meant the Hyphessobrycon flammeus as the word 'Columbian' was not included in his first post. Other fish are fine with the angels with the exception of cherry barbs and flame tetras. Tetras will not bother your otos.
