    corydoras, bloodfin tetras, serpae tetras, etc.
    Depends on what your looking for (ie. Top, middle, bottom?? Color, Activity, etc)

    Just be careful NOT to overstock since a 14g is still on the small side. These may also be of help:

    yeah i wasnt planning on puting more than 6 or 7 more fish in the tank. the rasbora's tend to stay at the top of the tank. what would be good for the middle of the tank?

    Long Finned Black Skirt Tetras, Hi Fin Serpae Tetras, Blk. Fluor. tetra....Pretty much any tetra.

    I have a bunch of different "types" of them and they all seem to hang out in the middle

    I'd add a few more rasbora's so you have a school of them and a bunch of cardinals or neons.

    I had a clown pleco, the day after I put it in the tank I never saw it again (thought it didn't make it and someone got him)...years...and I mean 2 & 1/2 years later when I broke the tank down I found him ALIVE hiding inside this lighthouse like decor.
