    Long or tall?

    Might be a bit crowded in a tall, but that stock would be fine for a long.

    That's a tall.

    If all your livebearers are males, you should be okay.

    I'd add more tall decor though - they'll appreciate the cover!

    Try punching everything into aqadvisor.com. It's not exact, but it'll get you close and you can play around with adding fish you've been thinking about and it'll tell you if you may have issues with aggression, weather or not to add filtration, when to do a water change and how much water, etc. like I said, it's not perfect but I like using it just to get an idea of where my tank stands..and go from there

    Imo, that's fine, as long as the livebearers are all male like TD says.
