I would love any thoughts on what you think.
Almost anything peaceful and quiet would work. As you are looking for shoaling fish, have a browse through the characins; any of the tetra, pencilfish or hatchetfish would work. For the bottom, corys or one of the smaller loaches; these also need to be in a group, 5-6 of a species, minimum 3 of each for corys if more than one species. Corys are under catfish in the profiles, loaches under cyprinids, but just make sure they are the smaller species in a 45g. All of the afore-mentioned prefer similar water parameters and conditions, plants, wood, etc.
