New plan for tank: featuring Bolivian Ram cichlid
I know I have been saying a lot of different ideas for my tank, but my newest and hopefully final plan is to have 6 cardinal tetras, 6 rummynose tetras, 3 pepper corys, 3 bronze corys, 1 bristlenose pleco, and 1 bolivian ram cichlid. Thanks.
I know our profile says a 20g is minimum for one Bolivian Ram, but with so many other fish I myself would suggest a larger tank. This Ram attains 3-4 inches and they are not that appreciative of being crowded by other fish. I have a male in my 115g asnd he periodically pokes other fish out of his way. This is not a problem in so much space, but when you put all this in the very small confines of a 20g it may well become an issue.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
