Hey guys! I recently just got a 60 gallon fish tank from a friend. I have a 10 gallon with guppies and platies so I'm not sure what are good combinations for a community 60 gallon tank. Any help would be great!

Are you going to get the guppies and platies into the 60 gallon? What are the numbers of each?

Maybe you can do this:

5x guppies
4x platies
10x neon tetras
8x false juli cory
1x bolivian ram

Yeah, but bolivian rams are generally peaceful. Many have kept them in community tanks with no problem

It's better to have 1 larger school than more smaller schools. The bigger the school the happier they are

Well the OP never stated they had both genders but if they do very few fry will survive in a community tank. I have guppies and platies of both genders in my tank but no fry have survived apart from ones I caught.
