What about this combination?

Hi guys!

I have a 20G(long) tank. It's been cycling for about 6-8 weeks now (I've been monitoring the levels and it has cycled and stayed constant). I currently have 3 zebra danios and 3 red-tail platies. I LOVE the danios- they are so hyperactive and pretty! I know they are considered a boring starter-fish, but they are too cool!

I'm wondering about having the following inhabitants in my tank.
3 platies
6 zebra danios
1 betta
4 panda cory cats
???

Will these fish be compatible? What else could be added to the tank?

Thanks!!!!

Danios might be a little too active for the betta and the paltys my nip at the flowing fins.

Ahh... Right. Thanks. What other sort of 'centerpiece' fish would work? Gourami?

I've had great success keeping platies with bettas. I personally think it would work, or at least be worth a try, but if you decide against a betta, a honey or dwarf gourami might be nice.

gourami may be the same deal as the betta with the nipping of the fins and wat not. fo a centerpeice i would go with a some kinda of dwarf rainbow (school of course). 4 or 5 dwarf neon rainbows would be awesome. there almost as active as danios as well
