Discus would be cool but a lack of experience could prove disasterous, they do need special care and wont always take the food you give the entire tank, in all, you cant go wrong with any of the suggestion, Although discus arent the easiest they are do able

In the same boat with the same size tank. I have about 8 roseline sharks and 5 bosami rainbows in my buddy's tank while I re-do mine. Thinking I will be taking the rainbows back, although I know he hopes I don't. I then plan on a large school of smaller tetras or such. Haven't decided on clean-up yet, as well as possible odd balls

Oh, I'd love a tetra tank, with different schools of tetra, or maybe a barb tank with a school of each kind...cories of course. I've always wanted to have gouramis, or you could have the largest female betta sorority ever!

Corys & discus. As someone said a tank this size needs a centerpeice.
If it was me i would get a pleco as a bottom feeder.

If you went with a Pleco, you would have to go with several smaller ones. The common one, and any others that get large, will destroy a planted tank.
