If you can't get a larger tank and you can't return them, then you can try putting in a divider.

They stopped fighting, but they still seem a bit nervous because of the water change. One shakes quite a bit while swimming. I don't suppose I did something wrong?

Don't know if I've seen the results of water tests here. If you have a shop test your water write down the numbers, fine or good tells us nothing. Unless you're doing something crazy water changes shouldn't bother the fish, and from reading back I'm seeing nothing out of line. Increased activity after a water change is pretty normal.

The fish are doing well, but one is still shaking. I have a feeling it's because of the other fish. Tomorrow, I am going to get a liquid test kit, another hit in Platy, and possibly a bigger tank.

They didnt have any more hi fins, so I got two green lantern platys so they can school together. They have been staying together, and the other fish really dont seem to care too much, but they are still getting used to the tank. I will post a follow up tomorrow.

Sadly the store we went to (the only one open at the time) only sold one liquid test kid which was out of my price range. I got test strips for now, but once I get the money I will get that liquid kit.
