I love the coloration of checker barbs, not sure if you considered those. I have had my rosy barbs for years and I enjoy them. They are very boisterous, but fun. They eat from my fingers and are pretty personable for small tropical fish.
I found some lovely rosy ones at the LFS. If you decide on them I would suggest looking at a quality shop first. I also bought a few at a commercial pets store, and was a little disappointed with their coloration. They are very hardy fish so would make nice starting fish in a tank. I think some people undervalue rosy, but they are fun.
