Not sure if the size or temperament will lend themselves well for this tank or not but I'm ordering a pair of peacock gudgeons tomorrow. I have 3 empty mature tanks at home so I'll house them somewhere there until I can see if they'll fit the bill for this tank or not.

Any other freshwater fish that strike you as being a saltwater doppelganger? I wish I could find some true freshwater bumblebee gobies. I think they would be a good fit as well but I don't want to subject some poor brackish fish to super soft acidic water.
What about dwarf puffers? I have seen some real brightly colored exotic looking black/yellows (of course I have also seen some that look quite dull).
