Well i would suggest neons or similar but my fish use them as a live snack. Ottos i've had before were ok but prefered the water cooler.

Whatever you do, don't get zebra danios... little roaches are soo annoying! There are a lot of tetras you can put with your girls, just have to pick one you like and do some research. I'd stay away from barbs, though, they tend to be nippy.

corries are a popular choice, they are bottom dwellers, but it depends, what kind of substrate? if it's too hard it can wear off their barbs

It's sand substrate, I do have hard water and a ph of 7.8 which may make a difference
