Rams and Kribs Together?

I have a 36 Gallon bowfront tank that currently has 2 bolivian rams, 1 gundgeon type thing, 4 cherry barbs, 1 furcata rainbow, a 5 inch hifin spotted pleco and a small angel. I wanted to add a pair of kribs but wasn't sure if they would get along with the rams. Maybe I could just add one? Also wanted to add a school with 7 cardinals or 7 rummynose tetras but wasn't sure. Any Ideas!!!!?

I don't think you have a good mix here. I'm not sure about adding Kribs, but for sure adding Cardinals and Rummynose and having an Angelfish in with this mix is not good. Big reason is water parameter differences, but there are other reasons too. Read in profiles about the Kribs, I think they need a bit larger group to spread out aggression. See what others have to say. . . 2 bolivian rams may/may not do well together and a 36 gal isn't much room to establish territories.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

Finish the schools of the schooling fish you already have and call it a day would be my advise.
