I was thinking about adding a molly, and maybe 3/4 tetras?
What fish would you recommend as I am new at aquariums this big.
Also, would tiger barbs/albino tiger barbs be a bad idea in this set up?
Thank you for your advice and help in advance
Welcome to TFK
If you have not seen it yet at the top of the page on the second tab is a link to the tropical fish profiles, which is a very good source of research for different types of fish and their requirements. On your platys do you have two females or male and female? If you have a male and female I would suggest on adding an additional female so that the male does not harass the one female to death. Tiger barb would not work in a 10 gallon, it is suggested that you have at least 30 gallons for them. I would suggest the idea of a bottom dwelling type of fish, dwarf cory or pygmy cory might work depending on what the hardness and ph of your water is. A bottom dwelling type of fish would help to add interest to you tank. I am sure others will have suggestions also, I would definitly check out the fish profiles, it will help you in deciding what type of fish will work best in your set up.
