Stocking a 75g

Trying to decide how to finish stocking my 75g community tank. Using a aquaclear 110 and an eheim 2215. Sand substrate and moderate amount of plants. Ph is about 7.6 so that might eliminate some types of fish.

Current stock

1 dwarf gourami
2 pearl gouramis
10 harlequin rasboras
10 black neon tetras
4 panda Cory's
4 zebra loaches
Plan on getting 2 more Zebras and 4 more Cory's. maybe a pair of bristlenose plecos when my tank matures. Any other suggestions. Tank still seems pretty empty. Would love to get a little more color to my tank. Any suggestions would be much appreciated

How about rosy or glass barbs?

I would at least double your loach school.

Don't think I wanna do another school. Kind of looking for something I can either get a pair of or just one. Maybe something with a nice color or a different shape

I really like rams but worried that my ph will be too high for them. Also would my loaches be too rambuncous for rams? Keep hearing how sensitive they are.

Zebra Loaches being bottom feeders, they may show some aggression against other smaller bottom feeders. Therefore, small corydoras are not suitable tankmates. They should be kept in groups of at least five. Any fewer and they will become stressed.

I have not had any issues whatsoever with aggression from my zebras. In my experience they are perfectly suitable to be kept with Corys and other bottom dwellers.

Seeing Zero aggression so far. Sometimes they are even chilling together. Gonna got more zebras in next few days. Adding fish very slowly since I am newly cycled.
