Post 40 gallon breeder stocking

I'm planning on setting up a 40 gallon breeder for German rams. I would like to keep ottos, rummy-nose tetras, hatchet fish, and German rams. I don't know how many of each to get, i would like to get 2 pairs of rams. Could i add corys to the mix?

Haha, this is my perfect stocking list 2 Pairs of rams should fit nicely, though it might not hurt to add a few extra females. I think Cories are compatible temperament wise, but I'm not sure which species are compatible with the temperatures rams prefer. I believe this has been answered on this forum before but I don't remember what the answer was. Maybe try this?

2 male rams
4 female rams
5 otos
7 hatchets
15 rummy

This leaves a little room for enlarging your schools or adding other species (like cories) if you prefer.

i don't think 2 pairs of rams would tolerate the extra females. sterbai corys are said to tolerate high temps the best. So could i do something like

2 pairs of rams
5 otos
7 hatchets
15 rummies
7 sterbai coys

Looks pretty good to me. Are you planning to buy the rams already paired?

How far along are you set up with this tank? It would be cool to see some pics when you do get the rams

Not very I have the tank and just put play sand in it. Schools about to start so things will get even slower. I have 3 otos in a quarantine tank.
