Sure. They are about the same size as the rams.

I have heard that Buenos Aires tetras can be aggressive. Is that true or can they coexist with rams and a severum

They can be a bit rowdy but if you have them in a big enough group they generally bicker among one another and leave everyone else alone. If you have several hiding places where the rams can go if they feel they need to I think they will be fine.

Forgot , you have a 75. You could easily do 20 or you could get smaller schools of two different fish. Honestly up to your personal preference.

Cory's absolutely. I would do more than 6 in a tank that size . 10 maybe.

I have no personal experience with silver dollars but understand they get big , need to be in groups of 6 or more and will decimate any live plants you have. If it were me I would go with something smaller. Maybe Odessa barbs?

Buenos Aires Tetras will do a job on your live plants. I love how they look. Very active and fast but I had to rehome them.
