Most tetra would work. Just avoid probable fin nippers (Black Widow Tetra, Silvertip Tetra, Serpae Tetra). The regular Neon Tetra and Cardinal Tetra compliment the Black Neon, just take note of water parameters (hardness for both but esp cardinal, and cooler temp for neon). Pencilfish are ideal with dwarf cichlids. Hatchetfish for the surface area.
In NA, unless you have a breeder in the area, wild corys are seasonal. I am not certain, but I think I read somewhere that C. duplicareus is being commercially raised in SE Asia, but don't quote me. And it will often be seen under the wrong name of "adolfoi" or Adolfo's cory. This is explained in the profile, Corydoras duplicareus.
