36 bow front schooling fish question

I have a 36 gallon bow front
I have:
1 bristle nose pleco
3 Cory cats

I would like to add a school of colourful or cool looking fish
I have neon tetras in a separate tank so would like something else.
Or a few larger fish that are cool looking instead?

Not sure...
Could any one suggest anything in either of those 2 options?
I think an angle fish would be too much for a 36 gallon so that's out.

I will be adding a couple frogs and maybe a snail eventually.

There are lots of options available, you can look into all the different types of rasbora, tetras, and rainbowfish. Rummynose tetras are some of my favorites, they look awesome in large schools. Also, corys like to be in groups, so you may want to add a couple more of them.

Marbled hatchets would look great and so would 5 or 6 long fin serpae tetras. Honestly they are my favourite!!

Just a few suggestions:

Rummynose, cardinal, diamond, lemon, glowlight, kerri tetras. Harlequin rasboras, blue harlequin rasboras, checker barbs, pentazona barbs, cherry barbs, furcata rainbows, threadfin rainbows, praecox rainbows, beckford pencilfish. For larger centerpiece fish I'd look into a pearl gourami or a pair of dwarf cichlids like German blue rams, kribs, keyhole cichlids, or apistogramma (cacatuoides, borellii, etc).
