New 55 gallon FW tank that is fully cycled

Hi..I am new to larger aquariums and 6 weeks ago set up a 55 gallon FW tank. It is fully cycled and this past weekend introduced 6 black phantom tetras and 2 bala sharks (really wanted redline torpedo bards but not have not been able to find in my area). The bala are only 3 inches long now and I did not realize the would grow to 14 inches so might be setting up another tank in future.

I'm debating on getting rainbow fish or dwarf gouramis to add to my tank for color. Any advise?

Also looking at 6-7 small tetras to add in future.

Any great suggestions for additions to my tank would be appreciated.
