Stocking advice on 100L new tank
i believe my tank has just come through the end of the cycling phase and am looking for ideas on which fish i could put in my tank,

at the moment i have 10 danios ( around half are zebra and half are leopard)
5 mollies (3 are black)
1 rainbow shark.

i was really hoping to keep guppies so advice on this and how many i could keep and any other suggestions on fish that are easy to get hold of and if i lose one ( i am new to fish keeping) it isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg to replace,

keep in mind you rainbow will grow up to 6 inches and the highest ph it will take is 7.0 where as molly live in water with a min ph of 7.5, guppies are also in the 7.5 ph group .depending on where you live and the quality. get the normal ones so they wont cost you an arm or a leg but the problem is you have danios they may find the guppies tail too tempting not to nip and that will cause problems in the tank.

Agree, and the Rainbow shark will also basically mean no other bottom fish, as they are territorial and aggressive with "rivals" such as loaches and some catfish. But as kitten pointed out, a 29g (100 litre) is not sufficient space for a Rainbow, and this can make fish even more aggressive.
