German Blue Ram

I have some questions on compatibility and overstocking for you guys. First one was if anyone has had experience with the compatibility of German Blue Rams, as my Petsmart just started getting them. I have a 10 gallon and they're dwarf chiclids so they won't get too big, and they're supposed to be peaceful but I thought I should check on other peoples' experience and how bettas react to them.

My tank now has 1 CT betta, 4 male fancy guppies (don't worry, everyone's getting along) and an oto for my diatoms. My water has been a bit cloudy recently but I don't know if it's the cholla wood I added, and my water tested as safe of parameters. Anyways, my biggest question is about whether adding a GBR or perhaps another guppy would be overstocking?

1.5 gal
Prince (HM betta)
10 gal
Cetus (CT betta)
4 guppies
1 Oto

Very much so overstocking. GBR's need 20 gallons minimum :)
