yup :) (btw, i thought guppies weren't a good idea because they're fins could get nipped? and the plecos can get quite big and be a bit territorial towards the corys, although that shouldn't be a problem if there's plenty of hiding places)
i'm going to make mine into a south-east asian biotope. not a really strict biotope, but south-east asian fish nonetheless. if you dont know what a biotope is, it's a habitat made up of fish and other organisms from the same area, all natural :)
today i also got a gorgeous little female betta to put in my 6 gallon spare tank. she is such a cutie..her name's Flame. you can see piccys in this thread: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/b...d-betta-50028/

Shes lovely nice choice!!
I am gunna make sure there are lots of hiding places especially for the corys and platys, i think im going to plant live plants, along the back and around the sides for the gouramis and lots of free swimming place, with a central ornament, probably a large peice of wood or decorative item, plus im going to maybe get some java moos, and some drift wood towards the to corners and floating plants!! im so excited and its going to be quite A WHILE until its all going to happen and come 2gether!!!

wow that sounds amazing! looks like you've got it all sorted out :D and yes it will take a while.
i have to make some changes to the layout of my main tank and i imagine that won't be happening for some weeks! good choice with the live plants, they help keep the water quality good.

Post your water parameters? I still think Platys are a bad fit.

Do they tell you the results in PPM or do they just tell you, "Oh, looks okay."
