So you do want to do a community tank correct?

I do like guppies, and platies would be a colorful choice as well. You should probably get at least one cory cat (a bottom feeder), I think they do a good job at keeping the bottom pretty clean. You are limited to how many species you can keep (if you choose guppies or platies or even mollies for that matter) if you wanted to have a schooling fish species (such as a raspbora or tetra). Since your tank is still new, tetras would need to be added later if you are going to have them. Remember only to add a couple of fish at a time so your tank can adjust without crashing and having to start cycling all over again. That's something I learned the hard way when I started out.
