6 angelfish
8-10 Threadfin Rainbowfish
15 Rummy nose tetras
6 Lemon or Diamond tetras
10 Cory Cats (there are alot of different species to choose from)
3 Whiptail cats (also called twig catfish)
1 Longfin Albino Bristlenose Pleco
1 Pair of German Blue Rams or Bolivian Rams

This type stocking will give you a variety of different shaped fish that use different area's of the tank.

Another idea is check out all the different rainbowfish and their colors. You could do a rainbow fish tank with loaches and even a pair of rams along with the pleco and whiptail cats.

Some have suggested chilids.< spelled wrong.

How many? What colors? What else gets along with them?

Are you considering African or American cichlids? If African, are you leaning towards Malwi, Tanganyika or riverian? If Malwi are you considering Mbunas, or Haps? If Tanganyika are you considering a community or just mixed species?The answer to those questions will make a big difference in what we recommend.

Community as in cichlids of various types mixed with other cichlids for the same lake or region. If you looking primarily for color, I'd focus on the Mbuna of Lake Malawi. 120 gallons of mixed Mbuna species will give you a great color display. The key to not having WWI in your tank will be selecting species that are compatible, but be aware that with cichlids there will always be some aggression in the tank.

6 Discus, 4 Clown Loach, 7 Lemon Tetra, 7 Bleading Heart Tetra, Green Phantom Pleco.
Or
2 Blue Acara, 2 Red Head Severum, 4 Clown Loach, Green Phantom Pleco, Some dither fish.

To be honest with a tank that size you really have a massive choice - jealous!
