Hello!

I am having a really hard time picking my fish and need help!

First off, I am a fish newb and have a 20 gallon tank, which I would like to have fish in by mid March at the latest.

I know I want Panda Cories, but my fish lady told me to wait until I have had other fish for at least a month before getting bottom feeders. So I will.

But I can't pick what else to get! I was thinking Tiger Barbs, but I don't want them bugging my cories. Then I was thinking Dwarf gouramis, but I heard they can be aggressive and I don't really know how many to get, if I should start a tank with them or what else they go good with. (But I really do like the look of them)

Can anyone suggest something good to start my tank with?

I don't want anything overly big because I do not want to limit myself. I would like a nice, small variety.

Thanks! :D

I just cycled with platies and they do seem to be quite hardy. If you choose them make sure you get at least two females to one male. They're very easy to sex. I would also recommend you get males who start off noticeably smaller than your females. They're supposed to be a little smaller at maturity but I have a mutant monster who rules the tank.
