Smile Fish Compatibility and Stocking Help

I currently have a five gallon fish tank and would like to stock it with
-1 male molly
-2 female mollies
-a pair of platies

I have a backup tank for the fry, which i hope to have
The tank is a ten gallon with an undergravel filter. anyways, does my stocking plan work or not? I definently want mollies, but any other tank mates possible?
Thx

check out AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor as a base of reference... it will give you details on how the fish are related and if your filtration is adequate

As Andrew said this should not be taken too seriously, I would check back on here with any ideas you have before actually doing anything. I also suggest checking out this thread: AqAdvisor - How Legit? . I don't think a 5 gallon is big enough for the fish you plan on. I would switch them to the 10 gallon and use the 5 as the fry tank.
