Do you have the three rams now? Perhaps you misunderstood...I was suggesting you not attempt three in this tank, just have one, unless you know absolutely it is a bonded pair. My male killed the female because they were not bonded, and that was in a 5-foot 115g tank with lots of space but they could not remain out of each other's way. A male Bolivian will deem the entire tank "his" space. Read the profile for more.

Upper fish could be several of the tetra, rasbora... check the profiles.

I already have the three. Would fork tailed rainbows be good?

You mentioned the forktail rainbow, which I assume is this species in our profiles:

I personally would not risk these in with the Bolivians. Better upper fish would be the peaceful characins of which there are many in our profiles.

I prefer others to select their own fish, not what I happen to like. Just browse the characins, and look for upper level fish, peaceful (most but not all are), and remain smallish (under 2 inches or so).

If you post your intention and I see trouble, I'll point that out, as that is only being helpful.
