you could put a single green terror in there and a bristle nose pleco , could be fun, but here is another stock which could be fun :

1x blue gourami
10x Cardinal Tetra
6x corydoras(any kind)
and maybe a bolivian ram with them ?

A green terror would be too big for that tank. Pelvicachromis or apistogramma a would be a better option.

That would work. You could also plug it in to aqadvisor. You could probably go to 150% stocking.

http://www.aqadvisor.com it's a website that tells you your stocking level, filtration level. It will tell you If your fish are compatible. Also will tell you what temperature to keep the tank at. You should check it out.

Brookster I think I'm going to go with your idea but no gourami. Hopefully all the fish will like the sand. I did sand because I was going to go with cichlids but heard these fish are hard to keep happy. I'm a novice so I don't know if I could handle that maybe later on.

You mentioned your tank has been "filtering" for a month and a half, but is it cycled? If it's empty there is a good chance it isn't. I wouldn't even consider GBR's at this point regardless. Once you're good to go, you can't beat a large school of cardinal tetra's with a couple of other larger fish. I have angels with mine. However cardinal's are known to be sensitive so they'd need nice parameters. Good luck!
