Mollies need 20 gallon minimum, though right? I only have a 10 gallon.

Yeah, that probably rules out all the Central American fish that would go well with platies. Maybe you could add some ghost shrimp, their not Central American but they could work.

well quick question, are looking for fry of your guppies and platies to survive? you can go to google and search "central american biotope" although it'll bring up things with larger fish, but with larger cichlids usually comes a list of small dithers that you could use. just a suggestion.
