After thinking it over, I decided that my failed sorority tank is going to be either a guppy or South American tank.
I'm mostly leaning toward a guppy tank but the idea of having say a South American biotope seems really fun. I know I kinda want to keep it blackwater and intend to get some (a lot) more driftwood.
I want to scape it mostly in driftwood, and fill in the rest with plants.
This tank isn't likely to be restocked until January, since the sorority crashed due to columnaris.
Micro swords (maybe)
Possible fish list (not all will be used, asterisks indicate interest):
Red eye Tetra
Black Skirt Tetra
Green Fire Tetra*
Black or Red Phantom Tetra*
Black Neon Tetra
I could very well get away with having the following and still be over filtrated.
6 bronze cories
