14 gallon stocking options!

So I went ahead and bought the 14 gallon! :) I just need help deciding what to put in it. I don't really want to start a sorority just yet so for sure I will put in my female Britton and the two zebra danios that she is currently with. She gets along with them great.

What are some other fish to add? I was thinking of getting the danios some friends, but I'd still like some other fish in there as well.

Yes, your Danios will really thank you if you get them some extra friends. ;)

I guess it depends on how many you want to add to the school. Have you considered getting some bottom feeders like Ottos or Corys?

I;ve never seen (or heard of) Cherry Shrimp, the petsmart here sells Ghost Shrimp (which I reccomend, they're really great little guys) and Rock shrimp (which i have no experience with).

I've heard of cherry shrimp and seen pictures but never have seen them at the pet stores here.
Thanks guys. I think I'll go with some panda cories. They look cool. :)
