    Welcome to fishlore!
    What are the dimensions of the tank?

    If it were me, I would do only 1 dwarf gourami, get a clown pleco instead of a snowball, and forget the swordtails altogether. I would also add 3 or 4 more neons.

    So the tank that I see online is 81.0 cm / 31.9 in x 36.0 cm /14.2 in x 50.0 cm/ 19.7 in. 125L is about 32 gallons.

    So... if you do Mollies they need to be the short fin version. Do not get sail or lyrtail.

    So are we talking all male live bearers or do you have an outlet for fry?

    Thank you all for your ideas. If I get any fry I will remove them and take them to my local fish place. Hopefully though I will get same sex fish to prevent any offspring. The molly I already have 2 of and was advised not to get the sail fin at the shop as well. :)
