Platies/mollies/swordtails/guppies????

Can platies, mollies, swordtails, and guppies live in the same 55 gallon tank? I got guppies and mollies but is it too much to later get platies or swordtails? Not right now but later?

Hello Miss...

Add some individual stems of a floating plant like Water sprite, Anacharis, Penny wort and Hornwort to the tank to provide a food supplement and hiding places for the fry. If you keep the tank water extremely clean, these fish will be fine in a 55 gallon tank.
