One 'problem' I would say is that the scarlet badis are supposedly fairly hard to get to eat. I haven't owned them, that's what I've heard though. In my own experience, blue rams can sometimes be hard to feed as well..
Also, to keep blue rams in that small of a tank you would probably just want to get one or two. They're pretty aggressive when spawning and they can be mean to each other if they don't pair off. I had a male and female in the tank and apparently he didn't like her and she just stopped eating due to the stress. She wouldn't go anywhere near him, and this was in a two foot tank so she was unable to really get away from him to relieve the stress. If you get an actual bonded pair they would be fine.. But they may nip while they're actually spawning. Mine never did any damage, but the cories, definitely ate all the eggs.
Also not sure how big mandarin shrimp are but rams will eat many of the dwarf shrimp. Be careful of that. :)
Those measurements are similar to my 28gal Bowfront.. Not exactly though. Posted via Mobile Device
