Tetra are nice schooling fish have a look at them. Maybe some Cory catfish for the bottom would look nice. Have a look at them

I like black skirt tetra. They can survive just about everything you can through at them, and make great additions to a tank.

If you're looking cheap, Red eyed tetras are always nice =) or if you can find scissor-tails.

Tiger barbs are cheap and they school. White clouds are cheap and can survive cooler waters. Really there are a plethora of cheap tetras and most are schooling.

zebra danios are usually really cheap, cheaper than neons, and they are much hardier.

Tiger barbs are very aggressive as well. Zebra danios are cheap. But they're very... Energetic.

In loving memory of Pansa Princess, the greatest horse who ever lived. May you rest in peace.
