What is you GH and KH? These are the most important, though swordtails and ranbowfish (depending on kind you choose) need a pH above 7.0. If your water is hard enough for swordtails and rainbowfish, and if you want cories, corydoras aeneus and c. paleatus are your best choice.That's great news, thank you! Will my pH be okay do you think? Right now I'm leaving towards rainbowfish, maybe a trio of swordtails, and Cory cats.
I must agree with @Wills on the convict, they are very aggressive cichlids, where I'm speaking out of my experience only. I had a pair of pink convict cichlids, at start they were fairly docile, but then they spawned for the first time and they weren't as aggressive but for the second time they spawned, suprisingly the eggs hatched, they got overly aggressive and they attacked my female until she got sick and passed, other fish in the tank were hounded to death, very stressed.
I hate convicts for that very reason, the female swordtail was my most favorite fish in the tank and was my very first swordtail and I got her for free too.
