Welcome to the list George. What business are you in, and 
whereabouts are you?
I'd look at Dicrossus filamentosus, as they are fairly easily 
available, and absolutely stunning in good water. These could then 
be housed with Cardinal and Rummynose Tet's and the like, 
always popular amongst casual viewers (i.e. non-aquarists, the 
poor creatures)  Many of the Apisto's which prefer very low T.D.S. 
can be difficult to find and fairly pricey.
Some of the West African fish would also be O.K. in very soft 
water, but these can also be expensive.
I would guess that there will be a list member within reach of 
wherever you are, which will facilitate obtaining stock.
