I was leaning towards rams but I wasn't sure everybody would play well together. I was hoping someone had experience with rams and cories together

Dwarf cichlids and cories don't get along, and the cories never win. I'd go with fish like tetras, rasboras, hatchetfish (if the tank's covered), pencilfish, smaller barbs, livebearers, and those types.

I disagree, I have seen many people having success with rams and cories. The rare instances are during spawning by the rams where the cories are dumb enough to keep going to the egg laying area. But if the tank is heavily planted it should not be a problem IMO.
