Have you tested your PH yet?
If not, then call your water department and find out. We'll be able to give you better advice then.
As a starting list, a few options would be-
Any of the 'dwarf' tetras or rasboras- Ember tetras, dwarf rasbora, green neon tetra, or, for something larger, some dwarf gourami could work. Honeys are too large, but look around at some other, smaller, dwarf gourami... A few only max out at a couple inches. You could also try a female betta- many are colorful, and most are quite peaceful.
If you have basic water, switch out the tetras/rasboras for the smaller danio species, along with livebearers. The Celestichthys margaritatus, Celestial Pearl Danio, is also a very nice fish.
For bottom activity, there are some small species of dwarf loach and dwarf corydoras.. Too many species to name.
Those bulbs are fine, but they don't always grow. I would just go to a pet shop and have them order a sprouted one for you. Might be a dollar or two more, but at least you know it will grow.
