I think the white clouds are an excellent choice. I think severum mama still has some of these left: They're Finally Here! Yay!

I just got mine today and they are gorgeous. Only thing with those fish is they will need to be in schools of at least 6 or 8.

I wasnt thinking about the cost part lol, good point there.

My tank is only 55litre,about 12g.I have no idea about aquariums generally yet so I think a planted tank would be too advanced a project for me.

Oh sorry thought you said 55g. Haha. Well 12g is still fine for a nano tank.

They will have more personality in schools. The more of them there are, the more comfortable they will be and they will be a lot more active. I was just thinking about it though, and I am not sure what tank size they would need because they need lots of room to swim. I think you will be alright though.

I cant remember but i dont want to rush into anything.Ive been looking online at various options like terrapins,jelly fish and sea horses.Terrapins and jelly fish Ive decided against but sea horses might be good and not too difficult.I might also choose a school of fish but havent made my mind up yet.My pond isnt really much to see lol,just a round tub 20g,with some stones and plants in.Ive mounted it up off the ground by 15"so I can syphon water out.They ve been in there a week now and seem happy enough.
