Are you looking for a centerpiece fish/small group of centerpiece fish? What is your water like? Is your tank planted?

Seriously not trying to be a jerk here but if some asks you "What car should I buy?" without giving specifics, would you just throw out ideas or try to understand the requirements first?

So you have soft water, so I'd suggest a couple schools of tetra, a bottom dwelling fish like Cory Dora's, maybe another school of upper fish like hatchet fish, or a single/group/harem of a cemterpiece fish.
You could also Do A female betta sorority, or go into cichlids, which I've never personality kept.
You could go salt water. Or different like a pleco tank, or a glo-fish tank.
You could even go species on a native fish!

Your choice!

Saw on youtube. A good planted tank with nothing but neons. It was very nice. I would add some julii cory or panda cory (6 at least which ever you choose) and neons. Would be great.
