Need sone opinions

Talked to a couple LFS, but wanted to get some more input about this. The LFS's told me it would be ok to add like 6 or so endlers, a snail and a african dwarf frog. To my 5.5 gallon tank that I currently have a Mollie and a African Dwarf Frog but before I do anything would like to get any input from people with experience. Because the LFS's workers I have talked to don't always seem to be the knowledgeable...

Make them all males and go with 5 and I think you'd be okay. I'll let others chime in.

I dunno. What concerns me is the Molly, which depending on what type could get 4 inches, and if endlers are like guppies, 6 should need a 10 gallon..

The Mollie should only get 2 to 2 1/2 inches is what the lady at LFS told me.

Do you know what species it is? 9/10 times you can't trust LFS employees and need to do extra research.

I have to agree. A 2" molly is still a juvenile unless stunted. Honestly, I think they are recommending too many animals for your tank size.

I second this. Also, if you want to avoid accidentally ending up with and African clawed rather than an African dwarf try shrimp. My Endler's play nice with a colony of red cherries.
