No moly platy...if gold fishes r oranda nd grow the hump, the mollies nd platies will try eating the hump. Same issue with bala sharks. I have experienced these issues...

Why dont you opt for only gold fish tank. Dont buy the regular ones. Instead go for the comparatively rare ones.

There are many fancy breeds of gold fishes out in market... oranda, blackmoor, celestial eye, fantail, lion head, ranchu, ryukin, redcap, veitail etc.
But, don't mix comet with slow moving one.
Plz also don't mix koi or shubankin... they are also fast moving like comets and make your fancies to starve!
You can look for bottom feeders like corydroras -- albino, pepper, juli, bronze etc,
I would not advise to keep other catfishes like plecos as they tend to produce large amounts of waste like your goldies.
Plan in advance to calculate the stock size as goldfish tanks are huge bioloads.
One vital piece of information is - goldies are cold water animals and they are not tropicals. Whereas cory catfish is tropical - from amazon river. So, you need to figure out a temp. which is higher threshold for goldies and lower threshold for cories. Acclimatise them to a middle range.

Hope this helps.

Prioritized ur love...eithr wife or gf ;) both nt possible in same room... :P

Its jst like dat nd in case u do, u will b left all alone.

In my experience, bala sharks dont tolerate foul water. While my goldies survived in choubaccha, bala sharks didnt. I could only grow bala sharks in a aquarium with good filtration. A night w/o running filter can kill thm. Happnd with me once during a transformer failure a yr bak. So, prioritize ur love.
