Thats a lot of fish for a cycle, do you have live plants? If not, I think you will have a pretty big ammonia spike. You will need to test your water everyday and do the necessary water changes...


Also, looking at your sig, your hopeful build will be way overtstocked for a 26g. For the fish you want, you need closer toa 46g tank. Esp with the dwarf gouramis and the live bearer fry that will inevitably occur.

Is it right for the black guppys back to be arched you cant really see it in the pic but from his pectoral fins to his tail its bent and he looks like hes having a lil trouble swimming?
2,Male platy
3.Yellowy ornage female mickey mouse platy
4.Orange female swordtail
5.Male platy/ female platy- Love birds!!!
6.The 2 lovebirds again

Sorry i didnt post before my computer didnt show me i had any posts!!!
I do have lots of live plants!! Getting more tommorrow i have co2 and very thick substrate gravel.
I just had my water tested and the ammonia is zero and the nitrate is 80 and the nitrite is 5, Im doing 30 percent water changes for the next 4 days, to get the ammonia down then i will take my water back for a further testing but all the fish are happier than yesterday! aND IN MY SIGNATURE THATS WHAT I HOPEFULLY WANT TO HAVE IT DOESNT MEAN I WANT ALL OF THEM JUST SOME OF THEM! Sorry bout caps lock!
