How many gallons is that, and are you planning on having it planted?

Any ideas at all of what sort of fish you would like?

if u only want fish around 4 inches try livebearers like mollies or swordtales theyre bright colors and easy to bread gouramis may be another idea i keep them in my 33g sun set gouramis are probably my favorite gourami ive read that on a difficulty level theyre 8/10 but i think thats a load u probably will go for tetras though

For bottom dwellers I think that a group of 6-8 cories would be wonderful!

It does depend on what type of cory you get, but in general they stay small (around 2") and they do best in groups of 6 or more. I have 8 in my 35g and plan on getting another 4. By the time I get another 4 however, it will be almost a species tank with only 2 blind cave tetras and a plec in addition to them.
