    I'm pretty new to this. So I've been doing some research on which fish I should stock my tank with. After searching around this is what I came up with:

    6 Harlequin Rasbora
    1 Black Molly
    3 Cherry Shrimp
    3 Ghost Shrimp
    1 Otocinclus vestitus
    1 Dalmatian Molly
    1 Platy
    6 Glo Fish
    1 Apistogramma Orange-Tail

    How does that look? I plan to have plants there also, any suggestions? My PH will be around 7 with a Dh of around 13. I also checked with AQADvisor and it gave me a 98% stocking level and that my temp should be around 75.2. Is this combination okay? If not, what changes should I make? I really want to keep the Dalmation Molly just because Ive always loved their print. Also, would I have room for a snail? Please let me know, I love advice! Ive been putting this combination together for the past 3 days so I hope im atleast headed in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

    I'd get at least 10 Harleys. Make sure you get MALE mollies. I'd not get the ghost shrimp, instead increase the cherries to 12 or 15.

    Otos are social fish, need to be in groups, I'd get 10

    Make sure you get a MALE platy. Depends on what type of Glofish you get, as to how many to keep.

    I don't keep cichlids, so no advice there

    Cool. So my new potential would be:10 x Harlequin Rasbora (Trigonostigma heteromorpha)
    1 x Molly
    9 x Cherry Shrimp
    1 x Otocinclus vestitus
    1 x Dalmatian Molly
    1 x Platy
    6 x Glo Fish

    With my stocking level right at 100%... whew thats close! If anyone would want to sub some Cherry Barbs, thats fine too... They are beautiful fish but may be too much cherry with the shrimp in there too

    on the Harley rasbora school. Like Slap asked you; depending on what the "glo fish" are, zebra danio or black skirts would determine their size school. Black skirts can get pretty big is the reason I'm asking.
