I agree with ghreed. Since you're not getting an oscar anymore, then you can only start with a few fish.
My mollies started with 1 black male, 1 silver female and 2 black females. The offspring are all black or dalmatians. In a few months there were lots of fry that I had to resort to feeding the smallest fry to the largest of my bettas just to reduce their numbers. It's nice being able to predict what fry will come out. I guess lyretails can be mixed with ordinary-finned ones but nothing too extreme like sailfins or balloons.
The resulting fry will then grow up and become the other inhabitants of the tank.
