what are you water parameters? when you say changed your tank around....what all did you move around? if you changed out all your gravel, you might have caused a mini-cycle.....

so, what did you change exactly and what are the parameters?

i changed around all the plants and stuff and i did a 75 percent water change cause the water was filthy and i havent did the w/c in a while cause ive been very busy.but they r all acting wierd even my fry! i didnt change the gravel just the plants and i added something new.i added a breeders net to put the small fry in which r about 10 and the rest r in the tank which r about 16 but i might just release all of them cause the adults dont seem to mind now.

Hmm something is off I'd say...

I have a planted tank, do WC's when I can (between every 1-3 weeks) and I never gravel vac- My tanks never been "filthy". Do you mean algae or detritus (poop)

how big is the tank?
And you can keep platies and guppies together you know...

You mean the 5G?
well you know you're only supposed to have 1 male for every three females... right?
The males are "sexing" the females to death.
