I agree, the Corydoras panda occurs in mountain streams and will last longer and be healthier in a cooler temperature, check out our profile (click on the shaded name to go to the fish's profile). And while zebra danios can "tolerate" warmer temperatures, most authorities recommend keeping them at room temperature, below 76. This would suit the cory just fine too. But as you also have warmer water fish in the tank, a compromise would be 78. My C. panda seem to do fine at this temp, but not higher. And as noted, rams are not suitable for the cory or danios.
And the cory definitely needs company; this species is highly interactive, and on its own (or less than 3) it will be under stress which can also shorten its life and cause health problems because stress affects the fish's immune system.
Forgot about the pleco, if it is a sailfin, and it has that appearance, it will grow close to 20 inches and require a very large tank.
