Yes, need to know tank size for sure.

Boesemani Rainbows would be amazing as long as it's a 4ft long tank.

For 45 Denison and Bosemani are out of question then.

Neons, cardinals, Red eye tetras, glass catfish, rummy nose tetras. Mant other tetra species.

Rummynoses are my favorite tetras. They form a tight school and sweep back and forth across the tank. They stay in the bottom third of the tank.

Dwarf neon rainbowfish stay in the top third of the tank.

They don't really school, but emperor tetras are gorgeous.

Danios if your not doing any other fish because they can become kind of aggressive, also ember tetras school very nicely and are peaceful, when you walk to one side of the tank they follow in a school.
