Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum, and welcome to this great hobby too.
I'm going to direct you to the fish profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. You may like to browse through and find some suitable fish. Some must be kept in groups and that is indicated, along with minimum tank sizes, and water parameters. You tap water parameters may steer you one way or another, depending what the hardness and pH may be.
There is a "sticky" on cycling at the head of this section of the forum that may be helpful. I prefer using live plants, they are a great benefit in a fish tank, and they can eliminate cycling issues. There are some sticky articles on natural planted tanks at the head of the Aquarium Plants section.
