    Hi Fishlore,
    After being busy all summer on vacations and doing house work etc. I am finally able to stock my tank. However, I am still not sure what I want. Also Considering I have baby Platies running around everywhere.

    Currently, I have:

    • 6 Neons
    • 2 Hi-Fin Platys
    • 6 Baby Platys (4 Big almost the size of the Neons, 2 Really Small)
    • 1 Guppy

    What I would Like to finish stocking with:

    • Dwarf Gourami (Neon Blue)
    • School of Rasbora or Rummy Nose Tetras (Leaning Towards the Tetras) But whatever is best
    • School of Cories
    • 1 Female Guppy

    Would the above stock be acceptable?

    Possible Stocking fish if the above doesn't work:

    • Blue Ram
    • Angel? (Too Big?)
    • Anything Else That would Look good and be a good option!

    Thanks for the help in advance! Also does anyone know any good places to buy fish online near CT?

    Angels and rams won't work, the angel being too big and both of them need higher temps than neons. Angels will also eat neons when older.

    What sex is the guppy? I wouldn't be getting any female livebearers, if you have any, rehome them as they overstock the tank with all their babies.
    I would get a school of panda cories and a DG.

    No Rasbora's or Rummy Nose Tetras? Would it between one of these schools and the cories?

    I would do the rasboras over the tetras.... the rummynose I believe need a warmer temp than neons.
