20 gallon fancy tailed guppy aid?
hey i have 20 gallon long fish tank with a space heater and two filters and the fish i have are ;
9 guppies and two mollies
i have 4 zebra danios but they give the impression of being to be nipping my guppies i need to know if this is aggression or are they playing pleas oblige i dont want to lose any of my guppies i would cry i love my guppies
please read this. good luck
I moved my danios to a smaller side cistern. Everyone has been happy since.
I have a school of danios and had this issue. Some people will communicate you that adding a lot more danios and having a especially big school will make them more peaceful and get rid of the problem. I figure that's possible, but it's also possible you'll now have more fish doing impossible to tell apart thing and it will make the problem a whole lot worse.
You can make available the danios away, get a second container and move them over there and add to their school, or look at a container divider which would only be a temporary solution since you'd have a smaller nouns for them to swim and they're kinda ugly (the divider).
I now have danios within a smallish tank in a school, and guppies within my big tank with my loaches. Everybody is happy.
EDIT: Your zebra danio's are schooling fish, and should be in groups of six or more. They get stressed out well, if not put in a group like this, and the nip of the guppies is probably another part of their stress.
