schmofam Posted May 22 Share Posted May 22 (edited) We just purchased six fish for our 10-gallon tank- three platys, and three guppies. There was already one guppy, one platy, and three mystery snails in the tank. Two questions: 1. We just saw a video after the fact about adding too many fish at one time and it become a "ticking time bomb of dying fish" due to the sudden bio-load made by the addition. Is this true? Can I prevent it? The tank has been up and running for about 7 months. 2. We have noticed that there has been some chasing, primarily to one fish made by a few new guppies and the existing platy. All of the fish in the tank are male. Why may this be happening and how can we address it? Here is the video we saw: Thanks Edited May 22 by schmofam Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
