Stocking a 40 gallon tank, ideas?

Wanting to do a good looking tank. I have a 40 gallon, all ready to go. AQ70 on it, and another 30 gallon filter as well. Want a lot of activity, bright colors. Ideas?

Yup it's cycled. I'd like one to two schools possibly. I'd like a schooling fish that schools the top, one that does the middle and maybe something for the bottom?

10 cardinal or rummy nose tetras
6 cherry barbs
A golden nugget Pleco
A trio of apistogramma
Try to avoid bottom dwellers, since the apisto's won't like it
Might have room for some more fish, Idk

I like the apistogramma idea. And tetras were one of my choices as well. Thanks!

Any more ideas?
