Are there any fish? I'd add a pair of blue angelfish, some albino bn plecos and a school of gold tetras to start out with

You have a lot of choices. You could do a rainbowfish tank with some type of loachs for bottom activity. I love yo-yo loaches myself. Or as mentioned you could do angels, with a couple small schools of tetras or rasbora's, and cory cats. Also a pair of German Blue ram after the tank has matured for 4-6 months. What fish are you interested in?

Heh it really helps if you select a type of fish you like. Then we can suggest fish to go with them

If you don't have any fish or plants you should breed some convicts or pelvicachromis pulcher.
