Definitely get that Pleco into a bigger tank and for god's sakes, buy more female guppies. You
have to have a better ratio to satiate the males and prevent a problem in the future.

ok, ok, i am currently cycling a second 29gallon tank which will strictly be for my guppies. i have added some more females. i now have 8 females and 3 males. they seem to be getting along quite nicely. before the addition of the new females one of the former ones was getting a nasty beating from the males but she seems to be making a speedy recovery in a separate tank.

Now that i am going to have 2 tanks up and running, i have decided to stock some cheap, flashier fish in the original. i already have a few tetras; 2 neons and 2 red eyes, all of whome seem quite settled. any suggestions for stock in this tank would be great.

i also still have my pleco in there but i have back up accomidations for him when he gets too big. You are all very helpful.

Hehe, yeah, I didn't actually think it was a common. Mostly just pointing out what you DON'T want in your tank.

i think you should get more neons in the original tank and add a few larger fish (not so large that they will eat the neons though )

once the pleco is out you could also get some kuhlis for the bottom. i like the idea of a gourami too. also some cherry barbs would be nice.
