New Interesting fish

Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting something that would stand out in my 35 gallon tank. An exotic and different fish that would give the tank a little life. Any ideas?

Ever looked into any of the Apistogramma species?

Yes I thought about getting a couple cichlids but they're aggressive and territorial, anything else?

Apistogramma do just fine in a community setting.

How about a Pearl Gourami?

That sounds good, I don't know much about them though.

Pearl gouramis get about 4 inches and are very peaceful.

How about a Bolivian Ram, I have a pair in my community tank and they really have a lot of movement as personality. With your tank you could fit a single one in
