I would do either pandas, juliis, or peppered (all my favorites). The pandas are the smallest and the peppered are the biggest. They all would do good in there and are very active!! I would get about 6 of them

You need to up your barbs to at least 5. More is better.

What is a cilard? You mean cockatoo cichlid? Yeah, they'd do well in your planted tank.

I'd stick with smaller corys for your bottom.

I JUST got done telling you this on another thread mr fishypants. If you don't want to listen to advice then fine.

Like I had stated before pandas would be good, there are dwarf and Pygmy cories as well that would be good in there. It's all up to you to decide which one

Let's just say it's not good form to ask the same question in various threads hoping for a different answer. The forum works best when we all can see what the previous dialogue/opinions have been. We can then expand on that.

As for the corys, I would say to research the corys. Go to the lfs and see them, write down the ones you like, come home and research. That's the best way to end up with the tank YOU really want.

I have two panda corys and they do just fine. They just go about their business digging around pretty much all day.

You get a lot more out of them in numbers.
They can survive in a couple. But IMO its better to keep a fish that naturally lives in large schools /shoals in as big of a group as possible. Their behavior is a lot more interesting in groups as well.
