If you're going Asian, you should try some Asian Killis for the top level. =] They definitely make good use of a planted tank. Love their activity.

Agreed! I love my BRBs. They're very active, quite peaceful and beautiful to boot. =]

What about some Dwarf Chain Loaches, or other small Loaches you may have available to you? You seem to have a pretty vast collection of species at your disposal. There are many amazing dwarf loaches. Otherwise there's the classic Kuhlis.
Other than that, I think a school of T. espei Lambchop Rasbora or T. hengeli Glowlight Rasbora would be lovely (and a bit different from the common Harlequin), or you could go the Dwarf Rasbora route but I hear those are a pain in the bum to keep alive. Or what about Celestial Pearl Danios or Emerald Dwarf Rasbora.
There are many hatchets, or you could go something like a Sparkling or Croaking Gourami? Or some wild betta species like Betta persephone. There are many lovely ones. Or there's always Chocolate Gourami.

Fill it full of odessa barbs and dwarf chain loaches. Keep the stock simple if you're going to plant it. Plant it heavy with crypts, rotala, and some blyxa, and use plenty of driftwood. Should make a nice bio type. Throw a croaking gourami in for the top if you feel like the barbs and loaches aren't enough.

If your not sold on BRB's; you could go with the pentazona barb (five banded barb). All the looks of a Tiger barb +, wothout the disposition or size.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
