    how about:
    a pair of sparkling gourami's
    a small school of tetras like neons or cardinals
    and some shrimp for the lower levels to pick up excess food

    Hmmm... I think I would go with 5 pygmy cories for the bottom and a school of neons. Or maybe 2-3 male guppies instead of the neons.

    Be sure to check the seals and leak test the tank before setting it up. Sometimes reptiles can damage the silicone. Also, is there a sticker somewhere around the top or bottom frame that tells you the manufacturer? Before filling the tank, it's important to make sure that it is designed for use as an aquarium. Some tanks are designed for use as a terrarium only and are not meant to be filled with water. :)
