suggestions for a small centerpiece?
I have a somewhat Southeast Asian jungle tank that I'd like some advice on. It's a 29 gallon that I guess would be considered moderately planted. The current residents are pond snails, MTS, chili rasboras, and Yunnanilus cruciatus. The fish just arrived yesterday from Msjinkzd so this is more of a planning for the future post than anything else. I'm not sure what else I will want to add to the tank, but I do want to think of a smallish centerpiece type fish.
Everything I've looked into seems to have a drawback or require something my tank doesn't have. Scarlet badis females are hard to find. All the licorice gourami species need tannins and caves to spawn in. Sparkling gouramis get aggressive when breeding. The smaller wild Betta species either need tannins and really low ph or aren't very good in a community. I've even looked into pygmy sunfish, despite them not being Asian. The seem to need wall to wall plants though
Any thoughts or suggestions from anyone that has kept any of these or something else similar? I'm willing to entertain any ideas aside from cichlids, since I have another tank I would rather put dwarf cichlids in.
