And im going to keep my guppies, since they are locally bred, and have shown no signs of distress. Plus TBH, im really attached to them, and if they show signs, i will return them, but short of sudden deaths, theyll be going in my 45.

What cichilids can i put in with them? are there any?

Most dwarf cichlids will leave guppies alone from what I understand. Since the tank is 75 gallons you can have so many fish if your going with guppy sized fish. Do you plan on useing live plants because dwarfs look so good in planted tanks it would be a waste if you did't :D .

It's actually a 45, and yes I will be planting it with live plants. I just have to find someone on Craigslist with a light fixture who won't flake out on me! Two guys already have. =\
I already have some java moss and water sprite though. I can't wait to start planting. =]

Apistogramma agassizii would work with those fish.

It does well in a well planted tank but can be known to eat plants if not fed quite regularly (twice a day)

So, I've decided on a Bolivian ram, my 9 guppies, a group of 10-12 cories and two groups of tetra.
The tetras I'm considering are:
Rummy nose
Cardinal
Ember
Lemon
Flame
Rosy
And if I can find them, harlequin rasbora.

The tetra groups will have nine fish, and hopefully I'll be able to add three more to those groups after I've begun to really plant my tank.

Anyone have tidbits of info on these tetra? Or the rasbora?
