So, Here is what I recommend to start:

10 harlequin rasboras,

3 platies 2F:1M ratio

3 mollies 2F:2M ratio

6 cory catfish

Platies and molies are very social and like friends, it would be best to get a couple more of each. The Rasboras would appreciate a bigger school as well. If you don't want babby live bearers you can stick with only female or only male mollies and platies. If you'd like some babies stick to the 1 male x 2 female ratio. Corydoras catfish would be a great option as long as you have sand or a soft substrate like fluvle stratum as gravel will hurt there barbels. I have 6 bronz corys and there the best, super active and fun to watch. They are carnivores, I feed mine omaga 1 carnivore frozen food, Northfin bug crisps, and Northfin community. They also will occasionally get frozen blood worms. If you go with corys start with a school of 6+. They are very social and can become depressed in numbers under 6. Your probably guna want to start with 3+ Harlequin Rasboras, 2+ platies, and 2+ mollies but I would highly recommend corydoras catfish as well.
