Tank mates for Glass cats

Currently I have 6 glass cats in a 40 gallon breeder with a combination of real and plastic plants. The tank has been set up for a bit over 3 months. I am looking to add some tank mates. A couple days ago I bought 3 peppered corys which are doing fine in my quarantine tank, but I am anxious to move them into the 40 gallon.

I want to add more fish, but at the same time I've had no casualties with a take it slow approach.

Some fish I am considering are:

maybe 3 Otos

3 female guppies and 1 male (I have one female and 1 male already in another tank)

maybe a group of Cherry Barbs?

I like the Celestial Pearl Danios but thus far I have been unable to find them locally. I'd be interested in another small sized schooling fish.

The glass cats are very peaceful and pretty much only come out at night. In fact, I have to feed them with the lights out otherwise they stay hidden.

any suggestions would be welcome.

Thank you

The ones you considered are all compatible. Quarantine every fish for at least 4 weeks IMO if you want to safeguard your glass cats from pathogens that can sicken and kill them. Glass cats are extremely sensitive to meds so best avoid treatments if you can by quarantining the new fish.

Thanks Lupin. I will resist the temptation to add the peppered corys too soon. I know glass cats can be sensitive; so far mine seem to be thriving. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize their health.
