Hi Grim have you considered the humble jolly awesome Bolivian Ram at all? Beautiful to look at, very cheeky little characters, pretty peaceful with other fish - even when trying to defend their young - and great to watch as they go about their tank rescaping business when they have young. I've found them to be very tolerant of water parameters too. Mine are in RO/thames water mixed, 8 gh, 5 kh, ph 7.4 ish, and have just started to breed. As of today, no survivors from their first spawn of two weeks ago ( :( ) but with a community of eat-anything-cherry barbs that isn't surprising!
