Compatible fish for a new tank help! :)

Hi guys, i have just set up a 70litre/15gallon hexagon tank done a 3 week cycle, now im struggling to choose some fish i dont wanna sound picky but ive already got guppies, swordtails mollies, platies, endlers, tetras.
I want something different with really sharp bright colours any ideas of a few compatible fish that look amazing.
Thanks

Do you already have these fish in the tank? If so, you are definitley overstocked.

The mollies alone need a tank twice that size. What are the numbers of fish that you have?

With a 15 hex you're looking at small fish as the shape of that tank is not really compatible with fish that need room to swim. You best best would probably be dwarf cichlids. I know very little about most cichlids as I don't keep them but rams would be one possibility.

I buy fish locally and have never bought any online but the usual sources will have them, such as liveaquaria.com, aqauabid, etc.
