Close, but no cigar. The list was:

4 Angels
4 Rams
10 False Juli Cories
?? red fish. Like I said, I was thinking those Red danios... but the angels might eat them... -bangs head against desk-

How would you like someone to stab you with a needle the size of a pencil and inject you with flourescent dyes??

I was looking at the rainbows. Don't really care for the body shape, honestly. Haven't seen the bloodfins yet, can't find a decent pic.

Bloodfins are cool... but at only 2" wouldn't the Angels be able to eat them? Not contradicting, just asking. The only fish I have experience with are guppies, bettas, and common goldfish.

There are a lot of tetras to choose from. Red phantoms, bleeding hearts and rosy tetras. There's nothing wrong with other colors.:)

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.

True, very true. I will be happy as long as I am not excessively over-stocked.

I keep reading that rams are delicate and hard to take care of. Is it true? What do I have to do to get the water to make it appropriate for them?

Yes, they can be difficult. Make sure to match the water chemistry of your lfs' tank and your tank so it won't be difficult to allow them to adapt to your tank. You might it necessary to use RO water if your water is very hard.
