Before I get berated for my current stock, just suggest other things. Even if it is just 1 fish. Anyways I have a very mature (1.5 years old) 10 gallon tank with lots of plants. Here is a pic I took before a water change about a few weeks ago.

Not much has changed except no betta anymore. Here is the current stock:
1x African Dwarf Frog
1x Panda Corydora
1x Emerald Corydora
1x Glolight Danio
1x Zebra Danio
1x Leopard Danio
1x Clown Loach
---
Explanations:
Yes there are many things wrong with this tank. 1 no real schools. There are no glolight danio nearby so I bought 3 leopard danio to compensate. The little one died and one disappeared leaving the current one. I then bought a white zebra danio (same color as the leopard) to make a school of three [or at least try]. Well the leopard (bigger) is picking on the zebra and the glolight (biggest) picks on the leopard. But I have seen the leopard try schooling with the glolight. The Emerald was one I felt bad for. He was by himself and I had a school of corydoras who I *hoped* would school with him. They didn't and eventually all died and now he is a lone ranger. Just recently I bought 4 panda corydora and they looked ok. They were all that was left and I said might as well get the lot. One by one they died and a week later only one is left. The clown loach was for a snail infestation I had. He looks fine, I don't plan to sell him or move him to a bigger tank until march or so, but even that will only be a 30 gallon. Sorry but that's my choice. The frog was because the girlfriend said so.

There now you have my reasons. What should I do (other than remove) to edit the inhabitants of my tank. I am really looking for a showpiece fish thats not a betta but is an open swimmer and non schooling. Dwarf gouramis are ok, but anything else? Thanks for the help. If you think I should add nothing, give me a stock list (using at least SOME of my current livestock) that would be better suited such as...
"Thats way too many fish. What about 5 Zebra danio a bristlenose pleco and a dwarf gourmai?"
Thanks a lot guys

looking for new fish for my tank

I have a 29 gallon tank with two red tail sharks, a tiger barb, two albino barbs, a pleco, and a crawfish. I have a leaf fish in my ten gallon community tank right now till it grows a little bigger to be put in the semi-aggressive tank. I've been looking at different fish that I could put in my tank, but havent been satisfied. I would love to know what fish I could put in this tank.

overstocking your fish tank might be the cost of your fish death and cost of stressing them out. =( Its okay to make mistakes because i do too =P and thats why im here aswell. many fish can outgrown your fish tank but since u gonna get a bigger tank i guess its fine =(.

I learn that for every gallon your fish tank is equal to the max size of the fish you gonna put in. If it is over your overstocking. for example: 10 gallon and tiger barb max size is 3 inches. i would only get 2-3 tiger barbs for 10 gallon tank. This is just an example of how to stock your fish tank. I hope this helps you.

I recommend to stop getting more fish until you get a bigger tank =)
