Are you into a center piece fish? Maybe a gourami, Angelfish, or a smaller cichlid.

What sort of tetras? Could do an angelfish but as you probably know, not very kind on neons and small fish.

Kissing gouramis are big no-no..I mean big ! They get to 12" and are large waste creators .
Best yet their 'kissing' is them actually removing slime coat from other fish when they finally go after them..
Pearl gouramis get good sized and are among the most attractive gouramis .
There are many cichlids from the African lake type to South American dwarfs..
What do like for cichlids?

I haven't done alot of research in to the cichlids but I really like the pearl dwarf gouramis.

I have neon tetras the ones with blue and red on there side. I thought about the bleeding heart Tets but wife didn't want them, I want a type of fish that doesn't get to big. Wife thought about a Betta but I talked her out of it

The pearls and South American dwarf cichlids would do well with Neons..
Look into Apistogrammas or maybe rams...Both stay small enough to live with neons peacefully .An angel will terrorize if not eat your neons..It is a natural food choice for them...
