Posted this on my tank journal, but that doesn't get much traffic

The core of my tank is dominated by CPD and harlequin rasbora, very red.

I also have 3 red eye tetra, which should be in a larger group, and I don't like that they are the largest fish in my tank (rather than a non schooling fish, one or two rams or something like that).

I would like to move my red eyes and get something smaller that adds color (I was thinking blue tetra), or as suggested above I could go with something like a pair of rams.

What do you think? Any suggestions?

Depends on the size of the tank, what are you working with? Some bottom fish, like loaches or corys would be good.
