Lol "chill and cheap". That should be a real saying .
Maybe some black neons, loaches, hatchetfish, swordtails, black skirt tetras, rams, Cory catfish.

Went to petsmart to get a quick water test, and ended up checking out the sales.... All levels were perfect but My pH was at like 7.8 though.... Got 3 Black Skirt Tetras though. Want to get some live bearers, don't really know what kind yet tho.

Also want a few Neon tetras (and a few black neons).... But the chick said I should get my pH down some before adding something as small as the neons.

Anyways, here's a pic of the 3 black skirt's I just added

Sweet! Just a quick FYI for black skirt tetras, the darker their "skirt" is, the younger they are. And yeah I would also lower the ph down to at least 7.3. For live bearers, go with platys, guppies, endlers, or swordtails. Mollies will get quite big ( 5" max ).

For my 55g, I got 15 striped kuhli loaches, 5 fire platys, 5 sunset platys, 1 rainbow shark, and a baby catfish.
What kind of Cory do you want?

Thanks for the list of love bearers, it's gonna make the research a lot easier lol.

And about the Cory, I dunno yet. I had an albino a few years back that was great! Lived forever, was chill, got along with everyone... Just a good fish in general. I'm assuming all Cory's have that temperament so I guess I'll just decide on whatever variety will look best.

Ur stock sounds awesome btw

Np.

And I really like the bandit, false julii, panda, and peppered cories. They all grow to 2.5".
And thanks, It's still a work in progress. This has barely scratched the surface on what I want my tank to look like. :P
