Need Stocking Ideas For 75 Gallon Tank

i am looking for some stocking ideas for my 75g tank. my other 55g tank has platys, harlequin rasboras, and pygmy cories in it, so i want something different.

the 75 has a sand bottom, silk plants.
i would like some cories or other bottom feeders.

my water is soft and has a PH of 7.8+. i am using 2 emperor 280 power filters, 560 GPH.

here is a pic of the tank:

For cories... I say

Corydoras axelrodi (Pink corydoras)

As for other fish, maybe some gouramis (blue, or pearl, or dwarfs), or maybe swordtails, perhaps some kind of rainbowfish?

cories i was thinking 4 of 3 different varieties. something like emeralds, pandas, and peppered.
rainbowfish i was thinking of 12 preacox.
swordtails are definetly livebearers.
gouramis not too sure about.
i need a center piece fish, like ram or severum. only i read that rams dont like cories.
