I will be using my 55 gallon.
I live in Florida.
I want to know can I keep different livebearers together and or any aggressive creatures.
Also will pea gravel and flourite soil be okay, I know mollies need a different Ph level.

you can keep all livebearers to gether and pea gravel will work very well for the plants keep in mind swardtails and platys will cross breed guppies can go with all livebearers

Thank you so much! I want mollies and guppies. Some snails. And shrimp? Will that be okay. And how much of each will I be able to hold.

I currently have 5 adult platy, 3 adult molly, 2 adult balloon molly, and 8 adult guppy, 3 small plecos along with over 50+ fry with more being born. I think you should be fine as long as you have a big enough tank if cause they breed like crazy. I do have a few snails that are also breeding and currently have 5 cherry shrimp in a different take waiting for them to breed so I could move them over. I’ve read that molly tend to eat them so I want to have back up just in case.
