A 15 gallon tank is too small for two different schooling species.  Choose one and put in a decent school of them, then add a single, or two different non schooling fish.

White clouds are small... 8-10 of them
Serpeas- they are too big for a 15, no.
Harlin???  Does that mean harliquin rasboras?  8-10.

I would do 12 of a school of your favourite SMALL species..Cardinals maybe..Harlequins maybe..Gold Tetras maybe..There are loads of others to choose from..Flame Tetras are particularly nice and small...A single school makes for a more natural display, happier fish and hence more colourful fish....

BTW Serpae Tetras are very nippy and tend to shred the fins of themselves and other fish during feeding frenzies..They are aparrently cousins of the Piranha so that kind of speaks for itself..They get a bit bigger and are really for a larger tank of their own along with other tough fish...

All tetras are cozens of piranha's!  It cracks me up that my pacu are tetras... but they are!
