Wish I had your problem. My girlfriend says she will leave me if I bring home another Tank. I think I will miss her terribly. :D

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Maybe a shoal of loaches (that stay small like kuhlii) Or cory cats.

Maybe a school of like 6 black skirt or serpae tetras or both? You could really have any tetra I just like that way those tetras look. They do tend to be nippy though, but they keep it amongst themselves when you have a big enough group.

And then like a center piece fish like a gourami or maybe you could get a dwarf cichlid, like a blue or bolivian ram.

Thats my suggestion, I hope I gave you some ideas at least

edit: OH! And maybe some ottos? Or some upside down catfish, that would be cool!

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.
