Over the past 15 years I've had many different species of cory, and they tend to be relatively similar in activity. But having said that, the environment can factor into this. Some like planted tanks because they spend their time browsing surfaces, including every leaf in the tank. Some do this more than others. They also like hiding places, like crevices in chunks of wood.

The Peppered Cory Cat (Corydoras paleatus)is another active cory and easy to find and keep but is not as atractive as the other two mentioned.

Panda Cories can be pretty gorgeous too. They can reach about 2 inches and have gorgeous colors. I only have 6 and they're fairly new so I have to creep up to the tank to see them schooling.My 10 Gallon Aquarium Journal

Hi - when I setup my tank I had similar ideas.
My centre piece fish of choice was a firemouth. I've had him since he was 1" and after a few months he is really blooming. He is a real character, just hope he doesn't turn into too much of a character! !!
We love cories too and they should work with a FM.
We have some barbs too. Byron on this site recommended black ruby barbs. They are cool fish, ours are still filling out.
We also have a plec. We found a l204 and he is a stunning fish.
