10 Gallon Aquarium Population

I have 1 molly which I got yesterday, they seem to be doing alright,, theyíve taken food. Iím really hoping this molly will remain to be okay, this is my first tank ever and Iíve had glofish die on me previously.

I was wondering in terms of the tank population, I wanted to add another molly and 2 platies or some other compatible fish and a netrite snail.

Does this sound like a good setup? Or would it be better to get all mollies? Also can I get all male mollies (the one i have is male) as I donít want breeding or more females because aggression is a big risk? Or could I do 1 molly and 3 female platies? Also one or two netrite snails?

Sorry I have so many questions, new fish owner! Thanks for any help you can give me

I would stick to 1 fish species. 4 of 1 type will be happier than 2 each of 2 different species.

Unless you want a population explosion i would stick to a single sex. Males are safer as you will be 100% sure they arent already pregnant.

Only if there are females. They might get a bit fighty at feeding time.
