I guess it would help me to help you if I knew exactly what fish and how many of each you have now??  You had a 15 gallon tank 6 months ago.  Do you still have that tank in addition to the 20 gallon you have now?  Is your new tank a 20 high or a 20 long?

When in doubt, do a water change.

If you don't have those fish anymore, then I would only recommend the Neons. If you have a 20 gal 'long', then I wouldn't recommend any other fish. If a 20 gal 'high', then....the Neons. Perhaps 9-10.  If you still have all those fish (regardless of quantity) then I would NOT try breeding Rams in your aquarium. Somebody will succumb to a quick and early demise. That will be either all the perspective fry, or any combination of the other fish.

If you are serious about breeding the Rams I would remove all of the other fish. In fact, you may have to remove the rams eggs once they are hatched.
when breeding a species tank is the best bet. Most fish will eat eggs and fry if they get the chance.
