Is this stocking idea ok?

My stocking idea:

Golden Sailfin Molly (1m/1f),
Blue Cobra Guppy (1m/1f),
5 Red Wag Swordtail, and...
1 Half Black Angelfish.

Is this an ok starting stock for a 40 gallon long? (4ft long) I hope so cuz I already ordered them online lol. The tank is already cycled btw. Thx guys Ps. I should be getting a lot of babies right? How long will that take?

With the mollies and guppies I would add two more females or the one female will be harassed all the time. I think they should all have plenty of room. Also, if you want babies, provide lots of hiding or the angel will eat them. With hiding at least some have a better chance.

I agree with adding a few more females or no females. The stocking sounds fine to me otherwise.

Thanks for the info guys... One last question... Can the females be any type of Molly or guppy? Or do they have to be the same kind?

it doesn't really matter, although I'd avoid getting balloon mollies because they are weird looking, slower, and possibly a ethical issue if you care about how they came to be.
