you could setup another 10 gallon for guppies to feed him, and then just stock that up once a month or have them breed because feeder guppies are only $1.25 dollars a dozen here

I just tested the water on my available cycled 10 gal and it read 0 ammon, 0 nitrite, and 40 nitrate. It still had two tuffies in it that I had not removed yet. I did a 50% water change and added some Amquel to combat the nitrates. My tap water has 5 - 10 ppm nitrates in it right now -- ugh. I put some flaoting plants in it and will get some guppies on Monday. I want to test the water again to make sure it's OK.

Could the nitrates, in addition to the temperature, hurt the minnow fish also?
