    Seems like a fine stocking to me! I'd add more decor, particularly caves and hiding places on the bottom for the ram.

    they had cardinals i was gonna get 8 of them but decided not to still a lil shakey from the first batch that died off in one weekend due too big stressful transport so i decided ill find a fish thats more common as aliray & cindiL recommended like glowlight tetras or black neons

    the sterbais are hiding alot is that normal for the first week or so cuz i threw a sinking shrimp wafer in and they didn't go for it maybe they need more time to adjust?

    Maybe! It might help to put more decor in so they feel more secure.

    TexasDomer here is a quick feeding video which soon turns into a frenzy poor cories always gotta compete even when ive fed the rasboras and angel they must love the smell of shrimp wafers lol https://vimeo.com/181317712

    Also i dont understand how the Ram gets so territorial towards the harley rasboras but ignores the cories and angel well the angel is explainable because hes alot bigger then her but it only happens when i throw a wafer in he must be a food hog i guess lol https://vimeo.com/181318009
