I'm guessing you already know your water params since you set up your first tank. If not, then we'll need your tap water pH and hardness (GH and KH). If I remember correctly, Florida mostly has hard water; this will impact the fish you can get. If that is the case, I would be looking at livebearers. Doing a tank of all males will prevent you from having to deal with the babies. It will also be more visually pleasing because the males are the pretty ones.
Livebearers don't really excite me if you're talking mollies and guppies. I was thinking something along the lines of 1-3 bigger fish that would mix with the cories. Maybe dwarf cichlids? I don't know much about them, though, which is why I was asking. Or maybe some kind of shark? I need to figure this out.
My water is about 7.6 - 7.8 ph and temp will probably run about 78-80 since I don't heat my current tank and that's where it ends up.
