Is this your first tank? If so, read up on cycling and figure out whether you want to fishless cycle or fish in: Guide to Starting a Freshwater AquariumAquarium Advice

For a 34 gal tank you have a good amount of options, too many to name really. If there's something you'd like maybe post here and we can help figure out if they would be suitable for your tank.

As stated by librarygirl, you have many options. The best answer to your question is... Visit your LFS, or browse the net, and find a few fish you are interested in keeping. Come back here with the names and many folks will be happy to help you stock your tank around that/those fish.

Neons and harlequins like groups of at least 6 each. For Corys I'd go with a group of smaller ones, like Panda, Pygmy or Dwarf and you could get a group of 6 of one of those. I wouldn't do Angels with Neons and a Betta probably wouldn't get along with the Mollys. Instead of the Angels you could do a Dwarf Gourami for a centerpiece and nix the betta. So:

4 Mollies
6 harlequins
6 Neons
6 Panda, Pygmy or Dwarf cory
1 Dwarf Gourami

Thanks for that is there any tetras that could be recommended instead of the harlequins
