Guppy and Platy Problem Help Fast
My one platy in my 10 gallon tank is always chasing around my 2 guppies.
I do not know their gender, but I thought they were all male...
The problem is, now my one red guppy is just laying on the bottom of the tank, and now is laying inside of a fake plant. He is not dead, but looks exhausted...
What would you guys recommend doing?
Should I create more cover in my tank? I have two little caves at the bottom, but only my gourami goes in there.
How would I create cover at the top of the tank where the guppies swim?
My tank consists of 2 guppies, one platy, one dwarf gourami, and 3 rasboras.
Thanks, and hurry please,
I decided yesterday to take the platy out and place it in a 1 gallon tank to fix the problem for the moment.
What kind of floating plants would you suggest?
Do they float at the top? or are there some that would float mid level?
Depends on if you want to do real or fake, for real plants I would suggest something like watersprite or people even use pennywort. I even have some wisteria floating in my 5 gallon. If you decide to do fake plants I would suggest using fake plants, the plastic ones. With the platy in the one gallon tank you are probably going to be needing to change water at least daily if not more. Platys produce alot of waste and ammonia can build up in a tank that small very quickly, especially if it has not been cycled.
