New question. Platy seems ok and not as botherd by carzy danio. But I did notice something odd. The green algea that I was told to leave alone for snack for fish (esp. molly) has turned completely brown and unsigthly... in just two days! I put the danio in two days ago. The tank is in dark bar area so I keep the tank light on for 12 hours so usually get green algea on the tank but brown on the fake plants.

What do you think?

First your tank is way to small for the fish you have. Second your light are staying on too long thats why you have the algae. And third the danio will not calm down the need to be in a group to feel safe. Pet stores alot of time are not very good at giveing out the correct information.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.
