Looking for some ideas as tank mates to compliment my existing aquarium.

Currently have neons, shrimps and snails.

My tank is 15gn so cant be anything too big (also dont want shrimps being dinner)

Looking for suggestions that arent the normal... guppies, platys, minnows etc.

Hi, nice looking tank you have there, need a bit more info for anyone to be able to advise like tank Temperature & water parameters, wouldn't want to suggest anything that wouldn't fit in.

I would say you're about fully stocked maybe just get a few male endlers?

Only about 60% stocked (less if the 4 in QT don't make it back) so depends on what you want to add, you could go for a couple of dwarf gourami or something like a group of celestial pearl danios, what are you looking for centre piece fish or another school of fish? What filtration are you running?

Ideally I'm looking for more of a centre piece fish. I would like gourami's (dwarf/honey or sparkling) but wasnt sure for size and if they'd eat shrimps.

I have a fluval flex with inbuilt filtration

For a centerpiece, you could probably get a honey gourami they're normally pretty peaceful.

Would 1 be ok on their own or would I need a pair?

You could probably go with either.

I'd say a male powder blue dwarf gourami would be great. They are perfectly fine alone in the tank. I have one and he's stunning. You won't be disappointed!
