Fish to Compliment Ember Tetra?

I have a 29 Gallon planted tank that I plan on stocking with:
15 Ember Tetra
12 Cory Habrosus
Pair of GBR

My question is what is another small schooling fish that will look good with the Ember tetras.
Thanks,
Ben

GBR might eat those fish if they can though.

I have Embers with habrosus too. I've been considering getting some Microdevario kubotai to have some more movement in the tank. My Embers seem to settle down and not move much by mid-day.

Another option I have is I could do a larger school of Ember Tetras(20-25) instead of adding another school of a different fish.

I just looked up green neon tetras and I think that they would be a nice addition to to the Embers. Maybe like 12 Embers and 12 Green Neons with a school of Habrosus and a pair of Rams.

The GBRs might eat smaller members of those fish. Green neons are nice, though. You could try a sparkling gourami... Those are small and beautiful.
