    I have a 100 gallon tank with a ph of 8.4 it will have mostly live bearers with a few BN plecs and a few snails. I was wondering what other fish could go on with them? I will try to lower ph if nesessesary.

    100gal, :D lucky you! So many options unfortunately a lot of the fish I am knowledgeable about would not be suitable for a high ph. Some rainbow fish can deal with high ph, have a look at those guys.

    pretty much anything but tetras and maybe cories, those are the only ones i've had trouble with and i have the same pH. Livebearers are great fish also, maybe you could get a bunch of different kinds like mollies, swordtails, platys, endlers, and guppies so you could get cool hybrids!

    I don't plan on cories anyway because the substrate is flora max:) I plan on having all kinds of livebearers in there:) I don't mind the fry most will get eaten or sucked into the sump anyway.

    There are many gorgeous species of killifish that would do amazingly well in that tank...

    Really? Cool! I have always liked killifish:)
    Do you think a gardneri would work?
