Think Small.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

a pleco well a pleco that stays small like the bristlenose pleco will do a good job running clean up crew and doesnt mind being alone so you could always get one of those but again i would recommend getting a bristlenose so it doesnt out grow ur tank

maybe three or four of the corycats. They much prefer smooth gravel as opposed to anything sharp.

For a betta, platies and cories 78-80 degrees would be best. I wouldn't go higher than 82.

seventy nine to eighty will be fine. Be sure tank has cycled before you buy the fish.
