Talking Tell me what to add...

So I have got bored and decided to find some more fish for my 100g tank.

Currently:
8 Giant Danio's
1 Black Molly
2 White Skirt Tetra's
1 Black skirt Tetra
5 White Clouds

Plants:
Rotala Magenta
Anacharis
Cabomba



I'm trying to decide on what fish to add... I need a algae eater, I had one snail, but have moved it to another aquarium.

Anyways, for the fish, I want color.
So some of my first thoughts were guppies, and killifish (*Korthausae (Red) Red aquarium strain, *Fuscotaeniatus Kitonga North TAN 97/9, *Eggersi Blue, *Patrizii Msumalini Creek K96-23,*or Rachovii Beira 98 )

OR

Go with say Killifish and new world cichlids (as they are compatible with what i have)...

OR

Other fish that bring color to the table.


However if you have input tell me what you would add and what kind/color.


Majority wins, whichever idea I listed or you all list, if majority agree's I'll put them in as long as they are compatible lol. More color = better!

my first advice on fish:
bring up your number of tetras to 6 each. So you'd wanna pick up 4 white skirts and 5 black skirts. All tetras belong in shoals. It keeps them happy and less stressed!

That being said...

Can you post your water parameters? Mainly pH and hardness, that'll help narrow down field of what you can put in there!!!

I see you only have 7 posts.....soo.....welcome!!!! hope you like it here!

Danios,white cloud minnows,and Killifish all prefer much cooler water than mollies who like temps between 78 and 82 degrees. If i wished to keep mollies, I would set up a tank of at least thirty gallons for them with ph 7.5 to 8.0 and temperature around 80 degrees.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Well, I'm also trying to decide to split the fish that are in this tank as well.
I have several empty tanks laying around.

I forgot to mention I was going to increase the # of tetra's up, but I was in a rush this morning when I posted.


Yes I'm new, lol, and yes I enjoy it here.

I'll get back to you on the pH level and temps, I keep a log of it on my home computer. I'm in a computer lab at school (wahoo, college... lol)

I have been debating on starting a mostly molly only tank, might add in a betta with them.

Just purchased 5 more black skirts, looking for more white skirts...
And the temp stays around 76

As well just bought some java moss and a java fern. Unsure which tank I"ll put them in right now.
Oh and made some acrylic yarn mops, for my zebra danio breeding tank.

I'm starting to grow fond of adding killifish to the tank.
SO if we decide to do that, what colorful versions do you all like?
