I will just mention for the benefit of members that don't know, that we have fish profiles on TFK with data on water parameters, numbers required for shoaling species, aquascaping ideas, compatibility, foods, etc. If the scientific name (or common name when it agrees with that used in the profile) is shaded, as several are in the above list, it allows you to click on the shaded name to see that profile. Not all the mentioned species are in the profiles, but from the shading you can see those that are.

Yes, they should be in a 30g in a group of 8+ with no other fish except some hardy substrate fish.

Quick question I am really interested in.

Would it be ok to keep a Platy or Molly by themselves?

With other species?

I have 3 mollies and 1 platy by themselves right now in different tanks.

Platy and/or molly can be housed with other peaceful fish that share the same water parameters (medium hard to hard GH, basic pH).
