    Six or more tetras and/or rasboras would be fine. Maybe a small cichlid also; something like Nannacara anomola.

    Any idea on how you’re going to cycle the new tank?

    It takes time to build up the colonies of bacteria necessary to break down the ammonia produced by the fish, and ideally this should be done before any fish are added as ammonia is toxic to them.

    What kind of plec is it? Some of the common ones grow large and would be unsuitable for your tank in the long-term.
