What about 5 Bosemani Rainbow fish? Do you have live plants? I hear these fish color up very nice in a planted tank. A group of Angelicas or Yo-yo loaches are fun and active to watch. What about a male Bolivian Ram?

I'm guessing from the fish you have in there, your water is soft and acidic? You could try cardinal tetra, neon tetra, or rummynose tetra. All are very colorful and when maintained in a large school are absolutely gorgeous.

Gwen is right about the plants. I've never seen fish shine so much as when they are kept in a planted tank. Floating plants are also great. I noticed that a lot of your fish are fish that look best under diffused light which floating plants help create. Maybe instead getting more colorful fish you should try to increase the numbers of the schooling fish and get them some floating plants.
