 You  can  get  plastic  fiesh  in  various  colors  &  sizes  (some  of  these  have  flexible  tails  too),  just  pick  up  as  many  as  you  want..  under  a  $  per  piece..  no  Water  changes,  no  filteration,  no  cycling...
 
 Kidding,  please  post  your  tank  size,  filteration,  WC  regimn,  etc  and  your  experience  with  the  various  fishes..
 
 In  6  month  you  have  tried  many  fishes,  how  did  that  work  out..  i.e.  they  died  or  you  gave  them  back  and  exchanged  for  different  fishes..

 What  is  the  size  of  your  tank?,  does  it  have  any  substrate?,  if  yes  what  is  it,  what  kind  of  filter  are  you  running  on?
 
 Since  you  have  FH  &  Morphs  i  doubt  if  you  have  any  plants  in  there.

 Dear  @IRock
 Don’t  you  be  a  naturalist  to  keep  fish  according  to  their  Biotope?  Giving  them  best  food  and  best  surroundings?
 And  please  refrain  from  posting  in  red  letters(Looks  so  whacky)  unless  it  is  too  necessary.  I  hope  you  don't  mind.
 Regards
 Kaushik

 You  could  keep
 Rosy  barbs  -  golden  yellow
 Red  Swordtail  -  Red
 White  molly  -  White
 Black  Molly  -  Shade  rather
 Blue  Gouramy  -  Blue
 Green  Platy  -  Green
 
 Rather  try  and  settle  for  2  or  3  colors  rather  than  keeping  all  the  colors.

 [quote="IRock";p="99788can  I  keep  Oscar  with  Cichlids?[/quote]
 
 Yes  you  can,  by  the  way  Oscar  also  is  a  Cichlid.  But  remember  that  Oscars  and  certain  varieties  of  Cichlids  (Like  Flower  Horn  which  you  currently  have)  grow  really  big  and  a  3  feet  tank  will  not  suffice  in  the  long  run.
 
 Try  your  hand  at  Dwarf  Cichlids  like  Krebensis,  Morphs  etc  if  you  really  want  to  go  in  for  Cichlids
 
 If  you  are  a  beginner,  would  suggest  to  stick  with  Livebearers  for  a  while  like  good  strains  of  Guppies,  Platies  etc.  Then  move  on  to  Cichlids.
 
 Fish  Keeping  involves  a  lot  of  patience  as  well,  dont  rush  into  things  with  a  though  that  "  I  want  fish  with  lot  of  colors"  ,  Start  with  easy  to  keep  hardy  fish  and  then  graduate  upwards.

 Loads  and  loads  to  give  away  to  your  fellow  aquarist's.

 >>Try  your  hand  at  Dwarf  Cichlids  like  Krebensis,  Morphs  etc  if  you  really  want  to  go  in  for  Cichlids  
 By  no  standards  morphs  are  dwarf  cichlids  and  by  no  standard  can  they  be  kept  in  any  small  tank.
 You  can  get  some  of  those  cichlids  from  the  LFSs  like  Rams  and  pulchers(this  one  is  slightly  rare).  
 But  if   your  motive  is  to  only  keep  colorful  fishes,  please  stick  to  the  list  given  by  Beta.  Cichlids  are   territorial  and  will  soon  become  repugnant  to  other  fishes  in  the  tank,  including  the  dwarf  varieties.
