    I would say Loaches, but they're nigh impossible to breed.
    What about some micro species, like the micro rasboras and danios?

    Fishnook is trying the micro Rasboras.

    Are a pain, but they do reproduce.

    Sturisomas can grow in excess of 22cm dependant on species? That big enough for you?

    Discus can also grow a good dinner plate size!

    Otherwise try red tail cats! lol! Although I don't think many people will take them off your hands!?

    Cheers!
