    180L 1m aquarium, looking for calm fish

    From my experience, my baby discus and mature angelfish are very calm, while my 5 platys are too active for me to enjoy my aquarium. They also peck allot and it's irritating for me to watch. So I was wondering what kind of calm fish can you guys recommend me.
