Looking for new fish

30 Gallon FW with no live plants.

1 Male Dwarf Gouarmi
2 Mollies
10 Tetras
6 Corydoras

I'd like to get at least one more "centerpiece" fish to fill in the tank a bit. Any suggestions for a fish (or group of fish, 2-3) that would go well with my current setup?

I'm looking for a colorful and somewhat larger fish (around the size of the Gourmi) or larger. Thanks!

you should get rid of two of your cories, 6 is too much for a tank with those inhabitants. You are already overcrowded without the addition of those tetras

get rid of some other fish then, you could always upgrade your tank to accomodate more

I am not a big fan of tetras but you can get some of the smaller rainbows. Threadfin Rainbows grow less than 2 inches and Celebes Rainbows go about 3. They are a schooling fish also but again if it were me I would replace all the tetras with these rainbows. A bunch in tank would look great!

I try to get my fish grouped together, if possible. IE if you get tetras get all the same tetra or if you get corys get all the same cory.

This is my opinion, good luck!
