How hard/soft is your water?

I believe it’s best for corydoras to be kept in larger groups (6+) so perhaps up those numbers first.

You can have different species of corydoras but it is best to keep each species in a social group (6+)
The cory and danios are best kept at around 22C long-term whilst the honey gourami are best at around 25C long-term.
24C will be the compromise.

Maybe a nice shoal of Neon tetra to add that splash of blue/red. Maybe 12 x Neon tetra (Paracheirodon innesi).
Also increase the cory numbers.

Definitely up the numbers of corys.
I suspect that your julii are actually trilineatus as there aren't a lot of julii on the market, unless you get them from a breeder, and they wouldn't sell just two. Wink

Ah damnit! Not so long back I remember making mental notes on the differences between trills and julii. Unfortunately it appears the mind cave has had a rockfall since then and the route to that information is currently blocked....i’ll have to get the crew in to sort it out Rolleyes

And Hell is afraid I’ll take over! 😈

They are definitely trilineatus.

Here an example showing the differences:

Yes, yours are trils.
Trils have the reticulations, and, whilst julii may have random reticulations, they are basically spotted. Trils get slightly bigger when adult.
And they come from different areas. Wink
