What can I add for "color"?

Hello,

I'm wondering what else you all would suggest for my 125gal tank.
Right now I have 3 Angels, 4 Blue Gourami's, 2 Gold Gourami's, 2 pink kissing Gourami's, 2 pleco's and 2 catfish(pictus) and 1 barb of some sort
I'd like to add something with a little more color.
What would you all recommend?
I'm open.....

Tank is 125 gal w/
2 fluval 404's
Thanks in advance.
BTW~ I love all these fish that I have in there but just want more color.

When I spoke with someone at a lfs today, she recommended rainbow fish because of the color. Also Clown Loaches was mentioned.
Will these fish get along?

Thanks for the link Todd

A small school of clowns (3 or so) would work nicely with that crew. Not totally sure about the rainbows, but I *think* they would also work well.

Do know the clowns will top out around 12 inches, although it will take a few years. They also are very long lived when kept well, so be prepared!

Robotcholi,
If you go to the "pond" section of the forums, I do have a few pictures there that you can look at.
I love it!! Fish galore
