    Hi lizzy and welcome. Your stock looks good. With your ratio of males to females, I sure hope your expecting a lot of fry, especially from the platys and mollies. Do you have any bottom feeders in your tank ?

    If your not wanting a lot of fry then you can do all males. See if where you got your fish will let you exchange the females for males. As far as bottom feeders go, it'll be what you like. I've got a mystery snail in my 10g, 2 albino bristle nose plecos in a 20g, 3 bristle nose plecos & 2 yo yo loaches & 13 kuhli loaches in a 55g, 2 common plecos & a rainbow shark in a 150g. I feed all my tanks once a day, just give them enough that'll get consumed in 2 - 3 minutes.
