What fish do you like. The size and kind of fish will determine how many you can get.

Get a pair of rams and a school of some tetras. Rams have good personality and tetras are active. Maybe some pygmy cories too.

Yes, she was talking about ram cichlids. You can get either a boy or girl, it doesn't matter. You can possibly get a pair of rams depending on the foot print of your tank. There are Bolivan rams, German blue rams, and German gold rams. Both germans are the same species, just a different color. Bolivians and Germans have essentially the same temperament and needs, but I recommend a Bolivian since they tend to be a little bit hardier.
Have you cycled your tank yet?
Another option would be a dwarf gourami, 8 neon tetras, and 6 pygmy corys. Or Instead of neons, 8 glowlight tetras, or 10 ember tetras.
There are tons of choices. Do you have any idea of what you like?
