New Species for 25 Gallon

Hi there!

I would appreciate fish suggestions for introducing a new species to my 25 gallon community. My stock is aging, and I'm looking for something colorful as the tank is the centerpiece of my kitchen.

Current inhabitants:

4 zebra danios
3 male guppies
2 male mollies
1 dwarf gourami
1 striped apple snail
Sword plant
Moss ball

Temp 78 deg F

My tank is cycled, and nitrates are a non issue.

Thankyou for help!

Perhaps some corys? I have never had them before, and all of my other fish are upper levelers.

It's a natural/purple/dark blue mix of the roundish gravel. There's no rough edges on it to damage the fish's mouths.

Could I please have some feedback on introducing four male dwarf rainbowfish? Is there any room left for some pygmy cories?

cory's should be kept in a group meaning minimal 6 in a tank. if you have that much fish in the tank you'll have too much things going on in the same time.hectic for some fish.
