Stocking ideas for 75G

i am currently cycling a 75g tank. i am planning on moving my pygmy cories, neon tetras, and harlequin rasboras out of my 55g into the 75 when it is ready.
current count:
pygmy cories= 8
neon tetras= 3
rasboras= 8
i plan at least doubling the current count. i still have lots of room.
i also need some ideas on tankmates. i want to stay away from livebearers. i was thinking of panda cories, pitbull plecos, glo-fish. looking for attractive, passive, schoal fish.

Many differing varieties of rainbows. Perhaps some of them, for upper region of the tank? Furcata's are a handsome fish in my view.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

The rams and kribs for sure will work, they are very peaceful toward others. I am not sure about apistos. I have never had them, but have heard that they don't bother tankmates...

cant find any info on the kribs.............bolivean ram seems like a good choice they appear to be hardier than the german blue or gold ram, but if any of my other fish spawn will they go after the fry? what would be the recommended number of rams?
