Some suggestions:

Paracheirodon simulans " Green neon" tetra
Aphyocharax rathbuni "Green Fire" tetra
Hyphessobrycon loretoensis "Loreto" Tetra
Hemigrammus rubrostriatus "Red-Stripe" tetra
Carnegiella strigata “Peru” "Marble Hatchet fish"\

Edit: How did I end up dredging a 9 year old post when intending on answering another current one? (sigh)

Hyphessobrycon elachys - reed tetras. They school well together, have cool fins, are tiny (about an inch), and active when the males are sparring or courting the females. I have them with ember tetras and to be honest the ember tetras pretty much hide in the plants most of the time. The reed tetras are almost always out and about.

I have 17 Greeen fire tetras in my 40 gallon tank.
They color up beautifully, look fantastic in a planted tank, and are very peaceful.
Mine also stay together for the most part, but are shoalers like most tetras.
Mine stay in the open midwaters but will not hesitate to come to the surface to feed.
Your water parameters would be good for them
