1 x Siamese fighter
2 x Dalmation Molly (both female)
1 x White Loach
5 x Neon Tetras
1 x Angel - note sure what to do with this as i have been told you are meant to have 3-4 together!!
Danios do best in groups of five or more, and are extremely active fish that could easily grab lions share of food at feeedig time, before other fishes have a chance.
Danios might also nip fins of fish like Angelfish,and betta or,, Angelfish could eat the danios and or neons when it can catch them, usually at night while fishes are resting.
The Angelfish,betta,and mollies prefer warmer water than the neons or danios who do better at temps not much above 76 degrees to 78 degrees F at high end.
Not sure what you are referring to when you mention 'white loach' but many/most loaches also prefer to be in small groups for they are social fish.
