If you go to buy fish, and find that you really like the mollies and other live bearesr, you can ask your LFS (local fish store) if they would take the fry (baby fish) from you if born. I had dalmation mollies when i first started (good starter fish btw) and they had fry, i scooped them out as soon as found them ( yu have to or the rents can eat them) and took them to my store, who took them off my hands. I would suggest getting as big a tank as you can, because the bigger, the better and the more fish you can have, I have a 75 gallon right now, and im in love with it, i would suggest getting danios, mollies, or platies, maybe some tetras, and a pleco, and if you really want you can get some ghost or algea eating shrimp (the shrimp tend to be pretty cheap). make sure you have plants, ( live or fake) and some hidey holes. Good luck and enjoy!
ps, you wil also need a gravel vaccum, its to help clean up the stuff that gets stuck in your gravel, which makes for cleaner water, you wil also need a water test kit, nitrites, nitrates, ammonia and ph.
