I've kept many livebearers in the past with success, just to add. You also mentioned honey gouramis,but instead of a group of those could I do one pearl gourami? I've also changed my stock abit.

Stock:
10 harlequin rasboras
8 cherry barbs
3 platies
3 marbled mollies
6 peppered cories
1 pearl gourami

Tell me what you think :).

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

One Pearl Gourami should be OK; individual fish can be temperamental, that's an unknown.

On the livebearers, if those numbers are accurate, the fish are in trouble; they cannot and will not manage in soft water. I cannot offer more.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
