Hi, I'm 11, I'm a bit of an amateur fish-person. My mom and I were at PetSmart earlier and she went all googly eyed at this awesome 30 gallon tank built into one of those shelf things. She has been talking about how she wants to get an aquarium for the living room, and I expressed how awesome this would be. She told me to pick some fish to go in it for my birthday... (she told me what she was getting for me because she wants me to be able to pick out the fish.) I love fish and I would never want to hurt any, and I am not very knowledgeable on how to pick a community of them that live together well. I would appreciate some help in the matter.
Some other facts:
I really just like dwarf gouramis, I do not have a specific type in mind, if you have any suggestions I would like something colorful.
I know this is quite a large number of fish for a 30 gallon, but most are fairly small. But still, with a good filter, will this be ok?

That seems pretty good, you may want to get one more glo-fish though. But; here are some things you must have and know:
~You need a heater and a thermometer
~Read up on each and every type of fish's needs. There is no such thing as to much research.
~The Nitrogen Cycle! I can't stress how important it is! Please, read up on it!
~Only get either male, or female platys! They are livebearers, so if you get both genders then you may end up with some unexpected fry (babies). Which it may seem fun to have, until you have no place to put them and they start to get munched on by the other fish.
