when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

A tank full of male guppies would be pretty eye catching. If you want a gazillion guppies, throw some females in with them :) Maybe some of your local fish stores will take some off of your hands in that case.

You could get a nice school of cories for the bottom or a bristlenose pleco (commons get too big). They'll need some hiding spots/caves but would be a nice addition to your tank.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

That would be very cool :). What live plants could go in with them and the substrate? There's a local shop that has some very pretty neon guppies.

Thank you dramaqueen :) I'm looking forward to reading more and figuring what exactly I would like in my fish tank. I know I want live plants,sand and guppies. Put still unsure of any of the rest.

I'd do a big school (at least 15) of cherry barbs, to go with the guppies. You could also probably find a tetra that would go nicely with them too. For the bottom, corys and loaches are good choices. A 4 foot tank is large enough for more than one group of bottom dwellers. That would get you activity at all levels in the tank.
