The rams will also occupy the lower range of the tank.  If you are hoping for 
surviving apisto or ram fry, then the neons should probably be replaced with 
something slower.

I like hatchets.  They will stay AT the top, and require food that floats.  
Mine are doing okay on flake.  Wingless fruitflies and soft, acidic water 
will get them to spawn in floating plants.  I've also seen spawning activity 
with earthworm flakes, which is easier to provide.
