I think my two favorite in the small fish world are danios and platies. I have a softspot for platies when talking about livebearers. Guppies are cool too. I would defenetively go back to zebra danios. In fact i have about 15 of those in my room's tank. Guppies are very interesting if you mix all kind of strain together.
I forgot to mention that bloodfin tetra are becoming more and more popular.
