Stocking advice for 65 gallon

I have a 65 gallon tank that's been set up for about 4 months. I'm looking for a good centerpiece fish and maybe a couple secondary centerpieces. I currently have 7 harlequin rasboras, 4 Albino Cory's and a rainbow shark. I plan on increasing my rasboras and Cory numbers to 12 and 10 respectively. I have artificial plants. The tank is fully cycled and pH is 7.8. nitrates about 20ppm. Temp is 79 and I'm currently running a bacto-surge sponge filter for 125 gallon and a penguin 350 w/biowheels filled with aquaclear sponges, filter floss and a prefilter on the intake. I'd like to add some size and color to the tank. What would y'all suggest? Thanks in advance.

Try this site. AqAdvisor - Intelligent freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor It's basically a guide, but pretty helpful.

Thanks but I already use aqadvisor and while it's a great source for compatability and managing stock, it does not give you ideas or suggestions of what type of fish to get. It only tells you if the fish you decide on are compatible.

I was looking for actual fish suggestions. I'm not that well versed on fish species and don't really want run-of-the-mill fish.
