After much research and deliberation (and driving to different stores) I ended up with 4 angel fish, 3 opaline gourami, 3 yo yo loaches, 5 platies a whiptail catfish and a mystery pleco(I forgot the name). As soon as I can Im going to post pics cause the tank is beautiful.

ummm did you add them all at the same time??? i only ask because a new tank may not yet have the beneficial bacteria needed to keep everything in balance. such a huge bio-load will either create problems such as loss of fish and/ or harsh conditions, or this could make a ton of work for you to keep things in balance until the tank is established

I agree with bearwithfish. Those aren't the hardiest fish to use in a cycle...

I also noticed in your aquarium logs you listed a pleco, do you know what kind of pleco you have??

Hopefully the tank is cycled!
