Default Future stocking for 37gal

I'm getting a 37gal for Christmas this year... Upgrade from 20gal yay! Anyway, I need help with a stocking list for my future tank.

Fish I already have...

1 blood parrot
1 opaline gourami
5 black skirt tetras
1 betta
4 mollies (1 male, 3 females)
3 zebra danios
1 albino bristlenose pleco
2 apple snails

What I plan to add...

2 german blue rams
6 corydoras

Is this stocking list ok?

I'm not sure about adding too much more, for a 20 gal the fish you have is a lot. Maybe when you get the 37 you can trade some of your old fish like the blood parrot and something else so then you can get the rams an Cory's

In my opinion, your 20 gallon is way overstocked...and your current stocking would even be pushing the limits of a 37 gallon. Just my 2 cents.

The Red-Tail shark shouldn't be kept with some of those fish, or in a 20 gal, because he'll eventually out grow it. Maine is right on the overstocking, good call.

Don't add, just move all the fish into the bigger tank and use the small one for QT/hosp/molly fry

If you are absolutely desperate to add fish, go with two corys. Despite what people say, they actually are happy as long as they have a buddy. But everyone is right; your tank is way overstocked.
