The german blue ram would prefer softer,much warmer water than your other fish would appreciate.But Bolivian ram would probably work.
Were it me,(and it ain't) I would look at the numerous tetras and barbs that are available and would do well with pH values you posted.
Livebearers, such as platies,mollys,and swordtails can, and do ,reproduce like rabbits. If you choose to increase their numbers I would opt for platies or swordtails and I would have four females to each male. I would not place more than two male swordtails in the tank for they can torment other males in efforts to eliminate the competition for females. I hope some of this helps.
Thank you for your response. I will certainly look for a Bolivian Ram instead of a German Blue based on your suggestions. Even though I like the appearance of the German Blue more I want to introduce what is best for the environment.
I am going to add 1 male swordtail and 3 females. My platies look to be one male and one female though I am not entirely sure.
The angels are still young and have not paired off. My heart is set on getting 2 more similar sized. Do you think it would be a problem introducing them?
As for corydoras... what do you think about adding 2 more?
