    The filter is off mostly for the reason that it bothers the butterfly fish since it is an hob filter. I really need to get a canister to disturb the surface a little less. I guess the hastatus are a no go then. What about micro-rasboras, they are small but a large school would be impressive.

    I have a school of snakeskin barbs. About a dozen. Very nice, beautiful and very peaceful.

    Stained water? You mean with tannic from driftwood?

    I use magnolia and oak leaves, so there are tannins from those. Not a full on layer, but some. Another thing I was thinking is some sort of anabantoid, like an unusual small gourami species.

    I like those, and the Vaillants Chocolate Gourami caught my eye too.

    Chocolate Gourami are very delicate and not for the beginner.

    Pygmy corys are more midwater swimmers but I haven't kept butterfly fish to know if they (corys) may be food. If it CAN fit in a fishes mouth, it will be food & butterflies have surprisingly big mouths.

    I can't imagine not having a filter or something that moves the water...I know it can be done in some few cases...but then you're probably there already.

    Maybe harlequin rasboras? A bit bigger than dwarf corys but, again, mouth size...
