Clownfish are awesome, it is true, but what that has to do with platy fry is beyond me.
Haha, i know. Thanks for the info, by the way. I'll look out of that, and stay within my guppy trail. Im probably going to get some platys and swordtails, pending on what my LFS has in stock when I visit.

I would suggest some Gouramis or dwarf Gouramis i have a guppy population in a 37 that is fairly stable because of a pair of dwarf gouramis. HOWEVER many times the gouramis will fight in pairs but i have lucked out, they get along pretty well together. And the gouramis may go after the neon tetras, but i had some neons and they were fine together.

Hon, just remember it's essential that you get bigger tanks, at least 10 gallons before you get any more fish. :) I know I know, it's hard to resist!
