White mountain minnows are the only thing else that comes to mind. Some barbs are cool water but they get too big.

Do you want livebearers, or egg layers? Or does it matter?

Platys yes, mollys no. Mollys get too big. If you go live bearers, you need 1 male to 3 females, have a plan for the kids.

Depending on how many breed, and how many times the female has given birth. If its her first time, only a couple of fry will produce.

You want there to be more females then males. Like 1 to 2 ratio, or 1 to 3

Hi, I have a ten gallon. I have nine mystery snails.. I was wondering if I could get some platys and breed them? I would get a heater if I need one. What all would I need? What is the male to female
Number?
Thanks,
Maddy
