I am going to apologize right now!! I totally skipped the whole part about the HEIGHT of the tank being 24"!!! That does make it a rather awkward shaped 15g... its a tall basically. My 15 is 24" long. Which now makes my little brain understand what you, SinCrisis is saying regarding the sparkling gourami.

My bad!! :)

The best fish for tall/cube type tanks are non-active, small shoaling species. Some have been mentioned. Boraras brigittae and other species in this genus are ideal. As are Nannostomus eques, the Diptail Pencilfish, almost "designed" by nature for such tanks, and their cousins the Dwarf Pencilfish, Coral Red Pencilfish and Purple Dwarf Pencilfish. A branch or two vertically provides ideal browsing sites for such fish. Any of the "dwarf" cory species would also work, they too love to swim at all levels grazing branches and plant leaves. There are several other small Cyprinids well suited. Obviously not all of those mentinoed, but a selection of 7 of 3 of these species [not mixing the three dwarf pencils].
