    I am most likely relocating my 75 gallon aquarium from my home, to my school. It has very little at the moment.
    I have 1 6-7" severum, 3 boesemani rainbows, and 2 pictus catfish.

    I would like to stock my tank with something like the following
    1 severum
    5 boesemani rainbows
    8 albino corys (or other cory)
    8 columbian tetras
    4 pictus cats
    1 pearl gourami
    1 German Blue Ram

    The severum is pretty chill. It is heavily planted with fake plants and 2 large pieces of driftwood. There's a lot of swimming space, but also a lot of spots to hide as well.

    How hard is your water? I ask that because I chose to keep Bosemani some years ago just because they could deal with our hard, alkaline water. I kept them with cory cats, which I found able to adapt to our water. I've found that tetras and GBR really do better in soft, acidic water, as do gouramis.
