Serpae are nice looking fish but notorious fin nippers unfortunately. Rams are great, 2 in a 20 high is pushing it unless its heavily planted imo. Also, they do much better in warm temps like 82-86 degrees which your pandas might not be able to handle unless you get Bolivian rams then you're good to go. I would suggest some neon tetra, cherry barb, 1 dwarf gourami, or 1 female betta and like 7-10 harlequin rasbora would be really nice just make sure you add the Betta LAST

I don't believe they deserve that reputation. I've never seen that behavior, and haven't heard of it when there was more than just a few in the tank.

I have seen several people call them all kinds of bad names lol. It def helps to up the schools, it probably has something to do with male to female ratio. I think they are amazing looking fish otherwise.
