Any small peaceful schooling community fish would be fine with them. Small tetras, rasporas rummynose, peaceful being the key and water perimeters as well.

The temperature is what makes it tough. Off the top of my head I can think of cardinal tetras, rummynose tetras, and Sterbai cories. There are other species that the top range is 82 F. Not totally ideal that way, but doable.

Agreed - GBRs do best in the low to mid 80's, which is warm for many species. Have you thought about discus? And there are probably some loaches, besides clowns, that like warm water. Dare I say, a group of female bettas?

I'm sure there was a reason... But yes we will never know it.

bacterial blooms aren't known to kill fish. More often than not, you won't know why a fish dies.
