What Fish to get for my Fluval Edge?

I just lost my betta to a prolapse, so now my fully cycled and planted edge is empty. Can you kindly give me some stocking suggestions?

Is it a 25g? If so, there are a lot of options. First, what are your water parameters (hardness and pH) out of the tap? Some of what I could suggest require soft water, some hard, some are adaptable.

These fish would be fine:

Celestial Pearl Danio
male Endlers Livebearer or male Guppy
Emerald Dwarf Rasbora
Freshwater Shrimp

A group of 5-6 of one species of the listed fish; shrimp fine with any.
