    What you can fit into this tank depends on what's already in it. ;)

    If your aquarium info is up to date, you need to build up your cory school. You should get at least another 4 of the same species.

    I would up your corys to 6 preferably and I would get a single bristlenose pleco.

    Depends on which 30 gallon tank you are refering to. Your aquarium info shows you have two one with mollies and such and the other with BPs. If you're refering to the molly and guppy tank I think you'd be fine with adding a BN I like them the best. I have a female albino BN and love her.

    If you're tanking about the Blood parrot tank I would not add anything to it. Mine use to attack my BN in a 55 let alone something smaller, now that I have them in a proper tank size they are much more reasonable but I wouldn't add anything into that tank with the BPs.
