55 gallon aquarium
First post and sorry it is so long

I currently have a 30 gallon tall but will be getting a 55 gallon from a friend today. After it is done cycling I will be transfering the current fish to it but would like to add a few more but am having issues deciding what.

Ok so what I have now is:
2 dwarf gouramis
3 male guppies
12 assorted platies
and 3 apple snails
all who will be going into the 55 gallon except 4 of the platies only the males will be making the transfer since they breed a lot!

What would go well with these fish?

I do not like neon tetras (have always had bad luck with them)
And if you suggest a large fish I would only want 1 or 2 I like community tanks more.

I have never been able to decide on a center piece fish that really stands out among the others so those suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

And what sort of bottom feeders do you think would do well?

I love corycats. =] Juliis and Emeralds are my faves.

I have an angelfish in mine for a centerpiece. But some can be aggresive.
