Swordtails in a 15 gal?
Hi! I recently bought a 15 gallon tank and was wondering if I had enough room for a few swordtails in it. I know that I'm going to have a few guppies (3-5), and I'm getting a male dalmation molly from my friend so I was thinking of buying a female so he wouldn't be lonely... with the guppies and the two mollies, would I have enough space for the swordtails? I know I would need a few females to go with the male so he wouldn't harass them too much, so I don't know if a 15 gallon is big enough...
This might be a stupid question but I haven't had fish since I was little, and then my mom took care of everything. :P
I plan to breed them a later date when I have more/bigger tanks so I've been gathering information, but for now if the babies die then they die... if they survive and there are too many I'll find a store to give them to.
I think you should be fine with a few swordtails. I think if you could probably get away with 3 swords (1m/2f) if the tank has a decent amount of hiding places. I wouldn't do more than the guppies, molly, and swordtails though.
