As a start, have a look at the information on your fish in our profiles; they are under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. There is a section for livebearers where you will find the guppy and molly species. The loach is under Cyprinids. And the neon tetra is under characins.

After reading those, feel free to ask any specific questions. At the moment, I am not exactly sure what you require. Those may help.

And welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

i have done alot of reading up on all the species in my tank :/ .... and it still dosent tell me what conditions a female guppy will be comfortable giving birth in. sorry i didnt state this in the first place. and how do you know if a molly is pregnant ... i have now added pebbles in the tank and i now have a cubby hole under the wood for fish to swim into freely.

Can you post a picture of your tank? Also how many gallons/what are the other dimensions of the tank? That would help a lot.

What type of plants do you have? floating plants are excellent for fry to hide in.

And if you are unsure what kind of loach you have, can you post a picture of it? I'm concerned about that because in my (limited) experience with keeping loaches, they are typically quite social and prefer to be in groups.
