Hello. I wanna have a community tank with small fish like guppies and harlequins. Temperature around 80F.

And I'd like to add a long or bigger fish, around 6 to 8 inch, something pretty and peaceful? Any suggestions?

(I looked into some cichlids, like rainbow cichlid or kribensis, but I don't know, will they behave if I keep only one? I think kribs aren't pretty if kept alone so that's also a problem.)

How about an Angel. They are super chill and they come in all kinds of great colors

Oh yeah they're cool too! I just wanted to have more options, I really don't know many fish!

Oh no, they only make me overwhelmed! :nailbiting:
And they don't give advice on specific cases. I've searched the internet before but now I thought I'd ask for people's experiences.
