Super helpful, exactly the info I was looking for. Anyone else with other suggestions would be great
I'll most likely put in the Cardinal Tetra rather than the Neon. After browsing their profile and looking through videos and pictures they really are beautiful in a planted thank.

Cardinal tetra instead of neon tetra is worth considering since you have soft water (GH 4) and the pH at 7 will easily lower naturally. They (cardinals) are more colourful, and much more resilient to disease than neons these days.
Rasbora in first, then cardinals, then rummys, then corys, then rams.
This is a good combination, I just happen to have these same species (minus the rasbora) in my 115g (along with a few others too). They really are so well matched, it is almost a lesson in community fish.
