Could do platys or mollys. I like platys more because they are colorful and still active. Mollys have big bioload. I breed platys and it's easy! Guppys you could do but not all colorful. If not them maybe school of danios or barbs.

I reccomend guppys I think they are very colorful you could get 2 males and 5 females to start they breed quickly then you could also add 6-8 panda cories for the bottom.

Well i have breed platies, guppies, and mollies, i agree platies are much better, theyre a lot hardier.
Ive had danios and barbs before so im lookin for something new.
Thanks for your suggestion though!

Oh my gosh thats so funny because i just had 2 males and 5 females. I agree they are beautiful but they arent very hardy and at the moment i need a hardier fish. Ill have to look into panda cories, ive had cories before and i loved them. And pandas are my favorite animal!
