Cool Fish suggestion

I have a 10g tank which will contain 6 neons, 6 lemon tetras and 3 otocinclus. I would like suggestions for 1 or 2 fish that will add a little colour but grow no bigger than 2 to 3 inches.

These fish must be non aggressive. I was initially thinking of dwarf gourami or ram but as pointed out in a different thread they would not sit well with my established fish and would not flourish in that size tank.

My tank will have plants and rocks and twigs when it is set up.

I would hesitate to recommend any fish if you are planning to add them to the other inhabitants. You are close to overstocking if not already there. I suggest you try using Aqadvisor.com as the basis for your stocking decisions.

I used aqaadvisor and it said I was at 73% stocking level with a 151% filtration so I have capacity for more fish.

When I was thinking 2 DG I was still only at 90% and by all accounts aqaadvisor errs on the side of caution.
