I have some horntoad male mollies and a few platys that I need to separate to prevent further procreation in the livebearer love tank. I don't want them to become lunch, though.
Also, I'm looking for a few tankmates... what other peaceful fish will get along with rainbows? Would a blue gourami be compatible? What about yoyo loaches and corys?
What else can you tell me about rainbow cichlids?
Never kept them with Livebearer's but kept a group with some Keyhole Cichlid's and loaches.
Found new homes for them when they began eating plant's.
Like the livebearer's,,they need a fair amount of greens in their diet .
While they may leave adult mollies,platy's alone,, I think fry would be on the menu.
