So my LFS is having a 50% off the entire store, time to get a new tank! 75g freshwater with 2 65g HOB filters. After it cycles I am thinkingof
Pair of Gold rams
3 bosemani rainbows
6 harlequin rasboras
4 Odessa barbs
pair of bolivian rams
For Corys, I would not have less than 10. Neons may wind up being eaten by the severum. If you want them, I would get 15. Same goes for the rasboras. Gold rams are a no - they like really warm water. Boesmani rainbows - 6. Odessa barbs - 6 to 8. I don't know anything about flag fish, and the badis might be outcompeted for food.
I'd ditch the Severum, it will likely eat everything but the corys and other cichlids. As for flag fish, beautiful and meaner than mean. They belong in a central american or south american cichlid only tank. The Badis will not survive. They are shy and hate lots of action. They can not compete for food and likely will not eat anyway due to stress. Keep in mind you have some territorial fish of various sizes and they may make life hell on everyone under them in the peaking order.
Not sure why you think the Corys wouldn't be on the menu under that pretense. Spines fold back - such fish get swallowed head first which negates the effectiveness of the spines. But I do agree - they won't get eaten either.
I agree with jaysee on increasing some of the schools. Perhaps you should look into black neon tetras, those are great! I don't know much about gold rams but I've kept bolivian rams in 78F community tanks. Do more research on it because I wouldn't be surprised if you can keep gold rams mixed in without going out of temperature range for all of your fish. Rams in general are just fun to watch.
