75 Gallon Newbie Tank

This is my first tank since I was like 9 years old... This is so much more fun than I'd imagined it would be! Fish are cool!

Here's who's in my 75 gallon tank:
2 Black Phantom Delta Guppies (m)
5 Glowlight Tetras
3 Rummy Nose Tetras
2 Cosmic Blue GloFish Sharks
2 Cosmic Blue GloFish Tetras
4 Cosmic Blue GloFish Danios
2 Zebra Danios
3 Blue Danios
1 Sterbai Cory Cat
1 Dalmation Molly (f)
2 Black Mollys (f)

Whew! Didn't mean to put so many fish in already, but got a bit carried away! Already there are some things I would have done differently, but so far everyone's getting along swimmingly! (Sorry, hope I don't get banned for bad puns!)

Need to either return the cory or up the number to a minimum of 4, 6 is better

Yep earhtmother, I think you're right. I definitely started out with some questionable advice on which fish and how many of each kind...

Makes me wonder - anybody have any thoughts on how you can tell if your fish are happy? I swear the two Glowlight Tetras I started out with looked downright depressed until I got them a few more friends. They do seem better now. My Cory Cat looks super happy, but then again, how would I really know what it looks like to be a "happy" fish?

I find my cory's tend to be shoaling fish rather than schooling fish. I have 20/30 *I think* and they seem to stay in groups of 2 or 3 unless it's dinner time then it's a free for all
