I just bought a couple of plants last night that would awesome for guppies, especially the fry. Can't think of what it's called right now but I was "assured" it was hearty. I'll see if I can get the name of it.

Well, I'm a big fan of corys, especially panda corys, and they're great community tank fish. They are constantly scavenging and keeping everything clean. Otocinclus catfish are great for the same purpose in comminity tanks. Mollys and platys would bo good in that kind oif tank too. Some tetras could be good too--rummynose, cardinals, penguins, etc. and/or rasboras.
Cabomba and Anacharis are pretty easy to grow as well as java ferns and seem to do great with all types of fish.

Swordtails would work for sure. Emerald corys are great too. Sounds like this is going to be a pretty cool community tank!
