  1. Cories in a Guppy Tank?

    Livebearers
    I have a 10 gallon with 5 adult guppies and an unknown number of fry. I was wondering if I had room for some cories in there with them? If so, how many and what kind? (I know there are different types of cory but I am not familiar with cories.) And if cories are a no go is there any other kind...

  4. Is my guppy a bully?

    Livebearers
    I have a male fancy guppy named "Zippy" in a tank with 2 mollies and 3 platys (he had a guppy friend once upon a time). He is ALWAYS chasing the platys (all male) around the tank, especially "Argo" who is twice his size, and nipping at his size. Is this normal fish antics or is my guppy a bully?
