My 29 gallon has finished its cycling! How exciting! ammonia=0 nitrites=0 and nitrates=5. The pH is a little low (6.6) as the tap water comes out at around 6.9.

I've been thinking the past few weeks about what to put in it and I still can't decide. Help!
I was going to do 2 angelfish, some cories, and a small school of tetras OR
A school of tetras, hatchetfish, cories and 2 black mollies?

Which should I do?!

HI I see you are maybe going to put 2 angles in your tank ,I was wonding how deep your tank is. It is recommended that it should be 24inches because angles can be up to 10 inches in depth including fins good luck Boff

With the first option, just make sure the tetras are large enough not to get eaten (no Neons).
As far as Black Mollies, they like to be kept in groups of 3 or more. If you want to breed them they need to be kept in a 1 male to 2 female ratio.
Just get whatever you want. We can't decide for you.

that's true about the mollies! I will keep that in mind. It would be nice to have babies again (I had platy fry a few times several years ago) I guess I will leave it up to the fish store and see what they have and what looks good (=
