Platies or guppies?
Well, I've had platies since I first got my aquarium in November and I'd like to start breeding. Buuutt.... I've got two males left and I can't handdle the number of babies that the six-plus females needed for those two would produce.
Should I get a female platy and take my chances? Or should I get a pair of guppies?
**I have a dwarf gourami, would he eat my adult guppies?
Also, I have two male mollies in my tank and I know that guppies and mollies can interbreed. Would they if a male guppy was present?
well iv kept fish almost a year now....even from the begining iv had guppys and platys....in total from my guppy girls over this time iv had 88 fry...and from my platys 0 :):):)...if your wanting to breed i would be guppies :)
I think there is 0% chance of a male molly and male guppy breeding :)
If you have one female livebearer with multiple males, they will hassle her a lot, better to have more femeles than males, or at the very least, equal numbers.
DGs are fune with most small fish, but even peaceful fish can be tempted to nip male guppie's tails.

well i just had a batch of platy fry and they r a little bigger than guppy fry i might say.i have around 10...im gonna post a thread on it..if i were u i would move the dwarf gouramis or get a tank just for the fish u were trying to breed.
I bought guppies! I've got a really nice green snakeskin male, a yellow-tailed female (Perhaps a snakeskin too...?), and a REALLY nice female with a big pink spotted tail. I can't wait for the pink's babies!
I've named the male Carlos because he looks exotic. Any ideas for names for the girls?
i like petunia
The yellow tail passed away while I was at school. I was expecting it, she was really hard to catch at the store and got banged up. :-( The other two are doing fine so far.
