EDIT: Juwel Rio 125L = 33G = 2" fish per gallon = 66inches of fish.
4 X 5" Ancistrus =20"
5 X 2" Sunset Platy =10"
1 X 3" F.D. Gourami =3"
7 X 2" Cardinal Tetra =14"
Total thus far = 37"
They are some of the fish I'd like.

As for fish with personality i find the dwarf gourami's very cute. The way they swim up to things and appear to stroke them to see what they are. You have khuli loach which albeit they hide a fair bit when kept in a group of 5/6 they are really fascinating fish to watch. Chain loach are very quirky little characters. They are a laoch and require to be kept in a group of atleast 5, but they're nuts. They dart around the tank like a hamster in a wheel. Great lil fellas. They do tend to chase other fish a little bit though if they arent kept in a group, they used to pester my flying fox's and chase my tetras around the tank. Panchax are a nice alternative, although not sure about their "character" as such, if you keep these 1 male to 2 female is a good ratio, and they adise not to have more than 3 in a 24inch tank.
If you want an alternative centre piece fish, have you concidered the Golden Dwarf Acara? Beautifull fish

I can't say I've ever seen a Gold Dwarf Acara.
I could get rid of 3 BN's which would leave a male and female in there.

Corydoras seem to be very addictive for people. I can't say i see the attraction personally, but whoever has them falls in love with them it seems.
Also a group of female betta's seems to be very nice. With each fish seemingly to have its own personality and traits. Ask BethK on here, one of her threads has convinced me that i'd like to try female betta's at some point

apistos (form of dwarf cichlid), are amusing, i'm waiting for my 3 to be delivered tomorrow, i can comment more on that aspect then
if you were to get a betta sorority, i would steer clear from getting gouramis too, they don't mix.
how about a rubber eel, they are funny little crestures

They truely are fantastic fish. Most are easy to breed aswell, also they're size makes them perfect for smaller tanks too In most cases.

Would it be Dwarf Gourami or F Bettas, one or the other?

Simple question What community fish do you guys feel have a really big personality?
My Pearl Gouramis have so bold. They follow my finger and I hand feed them and I only got them a month ago!

LOL that's what I always say I love about my Honeys, how funny is it? Mine do it to my hand when I'm cleaning. I have to be really careful not to bash them.

I was talking about this yesterday actually. My girls (sorority) have sooo much more personality than my male. However I was wondering would a single female be the same or would she be like my male...Either way my girls are very active and very nosey. One keeps swimming up the gravel vac as well which is annoying.
You have to be careful when picking them as was said earlier. I must have looked like a fish pervert as I've been going in to the same shop and watching the same female for weeks lol. You need to pick ones that don't seem bossy. They had a gorgeous one that I'd have loved to own but she was very bossy in the tank and it's not good for a sorority. All of my girls are pretty laid back; even at feeding times.

Bettas do have a lot of personality, but there is no way of telling how the females will react with eachother once in a tank together.
I'd agree that cichlids also have great little personalities. I've never owned the aggressive type, just rams, but they still have a ton of personality, and bonus, they're peaceful and colorful

Tomorrow I am going to try and find some Cardinal Tetras, I'll get between 5 and 10 of them.
I will also see if I can find some female Bettas.

They "greet" me when doing water changes and when I'm tinkering in the tank, they could over to my hand so enquire what's going on (not to mention gently peck my hand)...
