I have an established 55 gallon tank and I wanted to know how many balloon/Sail fin mollies and Cory catfish I could have in this tank. Please let me know.

When you say established does that mean there are fish in there already?
If there is no fish in the tank you could probably do about 4 sailfins 5 ballon mollies and about 15-25 cory depending on the type.

By established I mean cycled and no fish only 5 ghost shrimp. If I were to do less Cory catfish can I do more mollies? Also Thank you for responding!
If you do less cory maybe 12 you could do about 5 balloon mollies maybe five sailfin, but since corys are bottom dwellers it wouldn't make a big impact on how many mollies that you can get. You could do a TON more ghost shrimp if you wanted to.

Thank you so much I think I’ll stick your first recommendation of 25 Cory cats and 4 sail fins and 5 balloons.
