So after my dire exploding second hand tank from the newbie section (https://www.aquariumforums.co.uk/showthread.php?tid=860), starting this for my new Fluval Roma 240 setup.

It's still very early doors, the plants hardly grown and the stock very low.  I had 2 Platys and 4 White Clouds I had to move over from my little 19L my mother in law bought for my kids.  To go with those I bought 4 more Platys and some more White Clouds.  I also increased the Shrimp population from 2 Amanos that were in the small tank, now up to 4 Amanos, 2 Giant African Shrimp and a lone red/white Cherry Shrimp the LFS threw in for free as it was in the wrong tank.

I've tried getting some photos of the Africans, but alas they are still very, very shy at the moment, so the blurry effort below is all I can get tonight.

The background is temporary, it's actually a black towel until the matte black board I've ordered arrives in a couple of weeks.

Stocking wise, I'm unsure of my next step.  I don't want anything too big, was thinking Gouramis at most.  I was advised against Angels as they can apparently be a little aggressive toward smaller fish/shrimp.  My LFS suggested Bolivian Rams maybe.  I wanted some Neons/Cardinals in there at some point too, and was on a tossup between a Bristlenose or some Corys for the cleanup.  I had my eye on Endlers at my LFS, as they're beyond beautiful, but guess it depends on tank mates.
