26g Malaysian Theme Stocking

Hi everyone, I am starting my first tank with a 26g bowfront. So far I have two pieces of Malaysian driftwood in there on a sand substrate being cycled right now. I would like to recreate a Malaysian theme and was wondering what stocking suggestions you might have as for native fish and plants.

The centerpiece fish I would like to have is a pearl gourami. The rest I am open to suggestions. Also, any tips on gravel vacuuming sand substrate? The CaribSea Super Naturals package says not to, or to just lightly vacuum the very surface.

Not familiar with Malaysian fish but to syphon sand just hold the tube above the sand and because the fish poo is lighter than the sand, it will be sucked up without the sand being sucked up

Fish tanks required equation.. X+1, with X being the current amount of tanks.
