75 Gallon Stocking Help

Hello. I will be setting up a 75-gallon low tech planted tank with many plants. Regarding the fish, I am thinking of getting 3 Pearl Gouramis, 30 Ember Tetras, 30 Amano Shrimp, 10 Panda Cories, 4 German Blue Rams, 4 Bolivian Rams, and 2 Hillstream Loaches. Are these all compatible because I know that the Ember Tetras are pretty small, could I have them with Peral Gouramis? I really want to have action all throughout the tank. Would all these fish be dispersed in all locations of the tank?

I think the shrimp will be in danger from the gouramis.

It's certainly possible. Especially the smaller ones. I've never had Pearl gouramis, but I can tell you that most fish aren't going to mess with a full-size Amano. Also the Bolivian Rams and German blue Rams are not going to be compatible. They have different temperature requirements. The German blue Rams require a temperature of at least 80 degrees. I would scratch those and stick with just the Bolivian Rams. I can tell you it's still a hit or miss proposition. I added six juvenile Bolivian Rams to my 75 gallon tank at one time. One became dominant and killed the other five in a 75 gallon tank. That's certainly not the norm especially with Bolivian Rams but that was my experience
