They are active. Add these to your list for consideration, Rummynose Tetras, and Cherry Barbs. They are a couple of my favorites.

Harlequin rasboras and head and tail light tetras would work as well.

I second the Rasboras. They are awesome guys to have in the tank.

I say either the rasboras or a big group of male guppies.

because they are very colorful and if you want color, but a species only tank that would give you both.
also, you would want male guppies because one. they generally have more colorful bodies/fins and second, you dont want to mix male and female unless you want a million babies.
