Why don't you try something different than neon tetra's? Maybe rummy nosed? I have black neons and serpae in my tank. I would rather have rummy nose, they are cool looking. Especially the tail..

i have neons and guppies in with my rams and everything seems to be working out so far.i have 4 of each but i think you may want to get at least 8 or 10 neons(they are more comfortable in large groups)the guppies i have no idea the 4 i have seem pretty happy.

I have Bolivian rams and German blue rams in the same tank, living peacefully and happily with neon tetras, black skirt tetras, black phantom tetras, harlequin rasboras, pencilfish, popendetta rainbowfish, threadfin rainbowfish, neon rainbowfish and other various community fish. I don't know what kind of ram you have, but keep in mind that they really like soft water with a lower ph. I don't recall what guppies like, but you should select fish that like the same water parameters as your rams.

male n female are destinguished by the red belly, extra blue and pointed dorsal and anal finage (seen as a sharp extension flagging behind a male fish)
