If the tank is newly established,, I would buy a baker's dozen (13) of the cardinal's, and assuming (alway's a bad thing), that the tank is fairly well planted,,I would let these tetra's settle for a few week's before considering adding any other fishes.
The ram(s) are sensitive, and I would be in no hurry to add this/these,, until tank was a few month's old.
This would give you time to research other fishes that interest you.
It's your tank, so fishes should be what YOU want, but care in choosing them will be difference between thriving community tank or,,fishes that appear sickly, frequently.
