Both Tanks: Prime,API Kits,Not Planted
Don't remember the question, the answer is large PWC's, Prime, and OVERfiltering...

If it were planted you could try and angel. Just get a really young one and you would have a less chance of your glowlights being eaten. I also enjoy paradise fish. They are amazing.

I'd have a big school of Cardinals or Neon Tetras or Diamonds or Emperors. 20+ fish !! Tiny groups never show off as well IMHO.

I love Pearl Gouramis.

They are usually very peaceful for their size. Give them a planted tank or places to hide and they will be less shy. Quiet peaceful tankmates are best. Some floating plants will make them feel more secure.

You may look at Threadfin Rainbows also. Tiny mouths, so they need small food, but mine are lovely.

IMO do rainbows. They are totally unappreciated and don't get the attention they deserve.

Also, for centerpieces, I would do a nice pair of rainbow cichlids. It would look real nice

Wouldn't Rainbow Cichlids be too big for the small Tetras ?? I read they may be ok w LARGER Livebearers and Larger Tetras.

The Threadfins are fairly mellow for Rainbowfish. Not as common and smaller. Some Rainbowfish get big and aggressive.
