Could always try a severum or festivum as your centerpiece. festivums get around 4-6". Severums about 9" max. I've seen both do well in community settings. That's if you're into cichlids. Maybe some serpae tetras or lemons.

Yes...both Platies and Mollies like a little salt but it isn't absolutely necessary. They breed better with some salt in the water as Mollies are naturally a brackish fish..they can even be slowly brought to live in saltwater. When I first started with a fishtank, uhm, quite a time ago than even I care to admit I fell in love with Mollies but had a typical community tank; Angels, Neon Tetras, Mollies and some older type of catfish I don't htink they even sell anymore ...well before Corydoras' becasme the popular breed. The mollies did fine without the salt.

Most people don't put salt in for mollies. It's just easier without it, and the fish don't really care lol.

Since you have corys', you shouldn't add salt. I have read that they are sensitive to it.

Platies are peaceful types and come in all sorts of colors. The only issue is that you need to make sure you have a few more females than males. Mollies are pretty colorful these days as well especially Sailfins.

I have 5 cherry barbs with 5 male guppies and have no issue what so ever. The guppies I have do however spend most of their day trying to figure out why they can't breed.

Well, thanks to everyone for the advice... In addition to my original plans, I am going to persue the Bolivian Ram, and likely a few mollies. Stocking should start around the 26th, I'll let you know what I end up picking.
