Angelfish and goldfish are probably not a good idea. Maybe a couple platies. Some harlequin rasboras or celestial pearl danios ought to be okay.

Did you say you had an 8 gallon? Neons need at least 10+. And zebra danios require at least 20 gallons (long) and require a school of 6+. As it is, you're overstocked.

I thought that too but the manual an website for my biorb say 12 maximum small tropical fish and neons were recommended. So I chose to have 6 and 6 of something else. My dad has 4 zebra danios in a 7 gallon and they are doing great and are like 1 year old now so they would be fine. How does tis sound------
6 neon tetras
4 zebra danios
1 male guppy
1 female guppy

I want the guppies to breed as people will pay oat for them here

If you want the guppies to breed to sell, then you'd be better off just starting with a male and a couple females in the tank.

Ok hows this --
8 neon tetras

The neons should thrive because they are in a lovely home and there's 8 of them

In a 8 gallon I wouldn't do more than 3 tetras period! Would you want to live in a closet with 12 people? I think not!! You need one gallon per inch of fish, after decorations you will have 6 gallons. Tetras grow up to two inches....3 tetras equals 6 inches with 6 gallons. You said you were cycled, what are ur water parameters?

You asked about how to cycle then said it was done before you got it, did you get it full of water and take it home already set up with same water still in it or new water?

The water honestly has nothing to do with with it...
