Thanks everyone for your help! I don't think I'm going to get mollies anymore but il probably get some platies and red cherry shrimp. I don't really know what else to get maybe a colorful schooling fish. i think I want to stay away from rainbows because they are prone to fish tb but any other suggestions are more than welcome. I will try and post some pics tomorrow.
Thanks

Will my emerald cory cats eat RCS or will they leave them alone? Or if I got some good carpeting plants would that give them somewhere to hide so they don't get eaten?
Thanks

I don't think the corys will bother unless the shrimp are babies. My shrimp love to hang out in Cabomba plants.

So will the catfish eat the baby shrimp or will some of them survive? Hopefully tommarow I will have time to get some platies ,swordtails or shrimp

Honestly, I don't know a fish who wouldn't take a swipe at any shrimp small enough to fit in their mouth but luckily for shrimp, they are quick and pretty good at hiding. I wouldn't test the theory, though.

So you think I should skip the shrimp? Or should I try them?

My cherry shrimp are hanging just fine with my danios, platys, and mollies. I just meant that I wouldn't take a chance with baby shrimp.

Cool I really like the look of cherry shrimp. How do your mollies do without any salt in the water?

They seem to be doing really well. I remember reading somewhere that hard water sort of makes up for not having brackish water. I don't know if that's true or not, but it seems to be, if I'm going by my molly tank.
