Sailfin is the wild type of molly, never seen in stores, everything else has been bred from those for many years. Crossed with a swordtail or platy for colors.

If I found a dace minnow over 40 inches I'd keep it regardless of the state law, LOL.
Get some filter media from an established aquarium and you're good to go.

Not likely to find poret foam in a craft store, it's strictly an aquarium item mainly used for filters, usually sold in large pieces. There are a few people selling it online, try a google search.

I never kept (relatively) large adults, just a group of smaller ones too presumably too young to spawn. They do like cover, some rocks with enough space underneath for them would be good.

After seeing an adult group of Denisons barbs in a planted 125 I really couldn't recommend keeping them in a smaller tank than that, bigger would be better.

Not sure about exact species, but definitely 2 peacocks and 1 mbuna. Will need to grow out a bit more to be certain, but the blue banded fish may become a problem.

IMO Ram's are overrated; GBR's need higher temps than most other fish are happy with and aren't particularly hardy. Here's a few pics of a less-known SA cichlid I really like, a pair would be fine in...

Angels will eat neons when they grow out. Unfortunately, Colombian tetras would eat the live plants, so your best hope is cardinal tetras that maybe the angels won't see as food.
