Talking Hi from Philly

Hi, my name is Reds and I just joined this forum.

I have a 35 gal tank with 6 leopard danios and 6 green cories and I am looking for something colorful to live in the middle of tank.

Here is a link with pic of tank. I would love some suggestions. Thanks much

Hmm, maybe a few female guppies. I wouldn't get males unless you want fry.

Sorry everyone. I'm gone. I can't use the forum anymore. My health issues are too much. I'll miss you all and I will return some day, just not on this account.

No do it the other way around get only male guppies, they have larger and more colorful tales, and by the way beautiful tank!

Might I just start by saying I love your tank, very cute
For a centerpiece fish, how 'bout a single Dwarf or Powder Blue Gourami? Lots of personality and very beautiful fish

Thanks for the compliment on the tank. Still working on it. Initially I considered a dwarf gourami but after reading about them and knowing my danios are such aggressive eaters, not sure if they will even get a look at the food during feedings. What do you think?

I went to the petco and looked at the guppies today. What is the worst case scenario as far as fry go if I got both male and female
