Default New tank

Currently have a 30 gallon ( i know its small ) . Right now ive got 3 orange platys, 3 zebra danios, 3 bloodfin tetras, 3 black fin tetras and a Ancistrus.
Were going to bring back the orange platys , and bloodfin tetras.
I would like to add gouramis but i hear they tend to nip a bit.
I want fish that grow to be semi large, not as large as plecos but they must have color.
I would like some showcase fish but they must go well in a community.

also have a penquin 350 filter thats just sitting, do you think its worth running the 350 with 200 gallon, so i can replace the 200 with the 350?

Welcome to FF

It would be fine to do the swap out as long as you run them together for about 2 weeks so you can seed the new filter with the bacteria needed to sustain the cycle. With filtration more is usually better.
