My boyfriend and I have just set up our first aquarium, and I'm having a bit of an issue with a new molly we just bought this morning.
The tank has been set up for a few weeks, and we have a male guppy, two female guppies, and two x-ray tetras. I remember my mom having a tank with guppies and mollies co-existing just fine, and bought 2 what I thought are female mollies this morning (I didn't want to add any more males).
The male guppy won't leave one of the mollies alone. I haven't seen this fish be very aggressive with any of the others, but it keeps chasing this molly all over the tank and nips at her tail.
I really, really like this molly and don't want him to worry her to death... do I need to pull the male guppy out of there? or will he settle down once the 'new-ness' has worn off?
I'm admittedly new to this whole world of owning fish... Anyone have any advice, or know what I'm doing wrong here?
Thanks for any help!
