How do male Guppies do without any females? I am thinking about getting something on the smaller scale for my daughter's tank. I should have gotten a bigger tank for her. I hate being overly limited. I don't have the heart to put the other fish back in my daughter's tank after it has completed cycling. There would be too many for my liking anyway for the 14 gallon....poopy platties aloing with Phontom Tetras. I would have never have gotten three of each if it were only me making my own decision for a community tank. Live and learn. I knew better. If I did put them back I would put the Platties back. They seemed happier than the Phontom Tetras. I have not decided on what I am going to do yet.

Regarding this thread, the male guppies sound like a good idea.

i thought about the gourami's and decided against it maybe later in a different tank i decided on the guppies and am gonna try to breed them once it gets crowded ill start sellin or giving away to friends or whoever. anybody know anything about moss balls? i saw them the other day and they look really cool. and snails are pretty messy so im gonna add some ghost shrimp ill post some pics of everything once its all done =D

*EDIT* what about ADF's are they safe with guppies and moss balls? what do they eat? are they real messy? should i keep them away from guppy fry?

What sort of cichlid? Many species of cichlid grow much too large for a 10g tank.

its an electric blue cichlid. the guy at the fish store said if it every out grows i could bring it back and he personally would adopt it. by then i might just start a 30G tank and move him into there maybe get some more cichlids, they are very interesting

Considered adding live plants? That would add a bunch color and make everything "pop" more.
