Hi, I have a Marineland 12 g eclipse, that currently has 3 cardinal tetras and 3 peppered cories. I am already planning on getting 3 more cardinals, as to make a better school. I was wondering if it would be okay to add a PAIR of German blue rams to the tank, Thanks!

You have stocking issues, if you'd like to discuss them I would fix the current stocking issues before adding more fish.

Agreed, and there are also temperature incompatibilities: the peppered cories need cooler water than the cardinals and GBR.

I have heard that, Do you think there is any tempature that can handle them both?

What about 76F-78F, that is where I keep my tank...It seems to capture the 72-78 range of the corys and the 77-82 range of the cardinals.

The peppered cories should be in temps below 74 F and the GBR should be in temps above 78 F. They are not temp compatible at all.
