Can guppies by scavengers or ultra-agressive?
I have a 29 gallon aquarium that had 7 neons, 3 otos, 7 full grown guppies, and maybe double that of guppy fry, as well as 3 mystery snails. My neons kept dying on me, and I kept getting new ones with that 1 week guarantee the petstore offers. I thought it might be a water quality issue, since I am also having a snail problem (http://www.fishforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=3686
So I set up my old 10 gallon tank, cycled it, and put my remaining neons (only two :() in it. They were fine for a week. Then I added three of my uglier guppies. This was three days ago.
I checked on the fish this morning, like I do every day, and they were all fine. I checked them out when I got home and found one of my neons dead and gutted on the bottom of the tank. I remember finding some of my older neons that way too.
I've never known of guppies being scavenging OR agressive. Are either of these common guppy traits? Or do I have super psycho guppies in my tank?
