My only 2 cents to add is that a tank with4 livebearers won't be a tank with 4 livebearers for long...
Even if only 2-3 fry survive per month, it gets insane fast.

Are celestial pearl danios an option? They're relatively easy to breed, but won't overpopulate the tank in a month.

The 2 swords are a must (can't get rid of them). Can't keep corys in the tank (they preffer soft water).

I had a tank with 200 mountain cloud minnows in once, it looked awesome...if you've ever seen a big flock of Starlings it's alot like that.

Sorry Redchigh, didn't see your post (it was the first on page 2).

Unfortunately, Pearl/Celestrial Pearl Danios are not an option (they prefer soft water, this will be a hardwater tank). I might put some celestrial danios in my Amazon tank I will be attempting to setup soon.

I am aware of the fast fry. I guess maybe I can keep my favorite 2 males and my most mature 2 female (selective breeding) and sell all the others. If my lfs won't take them my friend (55g guppy tank) will probably take them.

But does anybody think that 2 Swords and 4 guppies would be ok?
