good points from Shidohari
If you eventually decide to go with tetra, you could have a nice school of colombian tetrras (sometimes called red and blue tetras), some buenos aires, serpae. there are a lot of larger tetra out there - rummy's are actually pretty small. You might consider Cherry barbs. they would also make a nice school and the DW shouldn't bother them. very pretty fish.
Do some googling for tetras and you'll find a huge variety. check their profiles for size and compatibility and I'm betting you'll come up with some good choices.
again, good luck30 g FW planted:corys, ABNP, blue angel, harleys, zebra danios, nerites & mystery snails

I am actually going to get a second tank and start a community aquarium in there.
Please, please, please answer my question about aquarium stocking if you can! It's called: Are these good stockings? Please help! :)

First of all don't forget to do a fishless cycle. It's the only way to go if you're going to be doing a community tank.
Secondly how big is this community tank you're going to be getting? I'm assuming you're also going to be obtaining a stand for it as well?
Please advise as it will help others on here to give you stocking advise.6 gal column- 1 powder blue dwarf gourami, 1 bronze cory, and one nerite snail, planted.
10 gal - 2 F celebus rainbows, 3 ghost shrimp, 1 nerite snail, 1 mystery snail, planted
10 gal #2 - 6 flame tetras, 1 ornate tetra, 1 nerite snail, and 1 emperor tetra planted

That's good then! I was getting ready to say that it's a bit questionable to have a Gourami in a tank that small with tanke mates. At least that's what I was told on the forum here.
I know that when I had my DG, he used the entire 55g I had him in and he was VERY active.130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 12 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.
