I really really really want to see my baby years spread out on the bottom of my tank. I love that look. But my swords were tearing it apart so I gave them away. Now my male molly is doing the same thing. My fish guy said most live bearers will do that so I guess I'm going to give him away too. I have a pair of guppys.. anyone think they'll do the same thing? I was hoping to keep them but might have to find a new home for them as well. Guess this tank is going to be a tetra only tank. LOL

No, it's 75 gal and I have one angel which I adore... yeah, I think I'm sticking with tetras and angels for the time being. Molly is going bye bye today. The guppy couple has been warned but no eviction notice has been issues....just yet.

I've got schools of cardinals, black neons, lemons, and glolight tetras. I also have a pair of guppys and 2 very young angels... and some danios.

Yeah, you should have done a little homework first. Livebearers typically like the exact opposite conditions to tetras, angels and other amazonia type fish. The also like to eat plants.

Livebearers prefer higher pH and harder water, whereas amazon fish prefer lower pH and softer water, and usually warmer temperatures. I would just stock up on tetras (schools), a few more angels, and maybe some cory cats?
