I'm making plans for a 55g I plan to set up in the fall.

The tank will have a dark brown fine gravel substrate and be moderately planted with an HOB and a sponge filter.
At this point I'm leaning towards a school of about a dozen rosy barbs as kind of a centrepiece school. I'd like to put a school of cory cats and a school of smaller, not red, fish in with them.

Does anyone have any thoughts on a suitable smaller fish? Am I wrong in thinking cories will be a good tank mate?

I have a school of 9 Rosy Barbs in my tank a mix of male & female & they range in colour from silver to a rich red gold, they're fast & very competitive for food so you'll need another species which can hold their own with the rosies, I also have a school of 10 Daisy's Rice fish, they're a beautiful small fish & range in colour from pale silver blue to a really dark (ink) blue when in mating colour, they're also good fast swimmers & nip in & out of the rosies to feed so get their fair share.
