I would say a top feeder type fish. Hatchets, danios or similar but they might not get along with the groumis. Something with a very distinct color pattern would set it off nicely. Something with orange or similar coloration in a distinct stripe would be cool just for some nice contrast.

i'm going to a fish shop tomorrow,so i'll
have a look,the danios sound good !
i must have a check on what they like,

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

sorry it was in the wrong place.
what say you on Penguin tetras ?
i know they need to be in a group of 6,
the tank conditions are in favour for the penguin.

Don't worry about the wrong place.;)

Problem with the penguin tetras is they'll nip your male guppies.:(

All the best with the labs Lainey, I hope they do well, and the tank of doom will be no longer. :)

Any pics yet? Your tanks always look so good!
