A ropefish. A couple of angelfish. I'd go with a Bristlenosed pleco rather than rubbernosed. They're larger and hardier. Don't put a gold nugget in there to eat algae. They don't. also, don't put a GN in there until the tank has been running and stable for a year, and even then, acclimate it like you would an oto.
Add one male and 3 female swordtails. That'll give you color, topwater feeders, and fry for the Angels to snack on.
The problem is, with angels you need to keep your fish over neon size - deep bodied small tetras or medium sized torpedo shaped ones, whereas with a ropefish you want all your fish to be 3" or larger. So if you do go with the ropefish, I'd definitely stick with the swordtails for dithers, but if you skipped it, maybe in favor of an african knife or a peacock eel, you could get emperor or diamond or columbian tetras or platies in there easily.
