300 gal Bubble Tank

So at work, I take precedence over a 300 gallon bubble front tank and I need some help. Currently I am having trouble Deciding on fish to put in it. I'll say now that i aim for SA fish/certain CA cichlids when I do my tanks. Currently it houses 6 Red Hook Silver Dollars, 1 Rotkiel Severum, 4 Clown loaches(Boss likes them in there) 1 Satanoperca Leucosticta, 1 Vieja Argentea, 1 Green Dragon Bristlenose Pleco, and 1 Flagtail Prochilodus.
So my question, what are some other very eye catching, uncommon SA fish that are all level swimmers if possible. Can be 3"-12". Am looking for more Pleco ideas, preferably algae eaters, not aufwuchs. Don't want alot of bogwood because of the tannins.

Tomorrow I put my three Geo. Brasiliensis into the tank. If the bioload seems large then...it might be. I have a habit of overstocking and over filtering. I will post pictures soon.

Please help me out and thank you for any replies.

Incidentally, why was it that none of all the pious ever discovered psycho-analysis? Why did it have to wait for a completely godless Jew?

A tank that size.......gotta love Datnoids. I had them in my 210 for a while. I love the fish, but I like the schooling fish better, and unfortunately, that just equals food for dats.

210 g - Empty right now

A school of big tetras sounds like it might work well to "fill out" the tank. Some large Buenos Aires tetras might work?

Thorichthys Ellioti

It doesn't get too big and it has some amazing colors.
