Often livebearers or danios are used.

Personally, I'd recommend you forget this idea and do a fishless cycle :)

I'm not sure what you mean here. Why is it better to have fish present during cycling? The very reason I prefer cycling without fish is simply because there are no fish ther to be harmed by the toxins.

[i like a tank with fish in it lol]

so you would rather watch your fish die slowly and painfully than waiting a couple weeks to watch them live and grow... not so sure that makes sense [/quote]

They are hardy but cycling also subjects them to permanent stress and damage very unfortunately. Fish brought in a tank that has already been cycled will live longer than those subjected to stress and damage brought by cycling circumstances.
