Mentioning your tap water parameters may help others suggest communities. And, are you partial to any particular fish or theme? It is easier to find fish to go in a tank when one knows the environment, such as a small river, lake, flooded forest, pond, etc.

This sound wonderful for rainbowfish, the larger like Boeseman Rainbowfish in the profiles. Or Central American cichlids, a group of some of the "freindlier" species, several in the profiles. Livebearers obviously with that water. Rift lake cichlids if you're into those.

With the rainbow and/or livebearers, a small river aquascape would be lovely in that space. Fine gravel, rounded pebbles (river rock) of varying size, a few chunks of wood.
