    Hi.
    I have a cycled 30 gal tank which houses 4 peppered cories currently, I am going to add three more at the weekend. I'm just wondering what other fish would appreciate cooler temps? I'm currently ruining it at 22 degrees centigrade. I'm thinking perhaps 6 zebra danios but what else?

    White cloud mountain minnows would work - the golden variety looks real nice with red fins!

    For a centerpiece fish, you could go with a florida flag fish, but if you did I would keep an eye on it.
    A better option would be a dwarf gourami.
