50 gallon tank.

Hi I just started up my 50 gallon tank aging last week. I had it going for the last couple years until my hi fin shark completely took over he or she ate the rest of my fish I had to take all my plants n decorations out n just leav him or she in there until I had to move him out since he got to big for the tank. My tank was with out water for a couple months until last week. I filled it up put a couple of rocks n amazon sword plants in it with a piece of drift wood it's been running for the last week find. All my test r good n I just add 5 neon tetras. Plan on adding some guppies n Molly's n maybe a boeiheiand rainbow . Can anyone help me wi what other kinds of community fish I can add with the tetras? . And also can I add other tetras to the neons with out fighting.

The Cory's I was gonna add in last . Should I wait a week in between each type of fish I add? Even more neons was gonna add 5 more to neons today ?

If you're going to add schooling fish. I would add them all in once of each species. That way the bond and will reduce the stress all together.
