The plan B would be your best bet, but leave out the cories and get some shrimp.
Why plan A wouldnt of worked was because Zebras need to be in schools of 6 or more to keep the fin nipping to a minimum. And Ive also heard that the more male guppies, the more aggression is going to happen...
It does sound like a Fungus infection to me.
I would advise to do 25-50% water changes everyday to keep the water as clean as possible (Helps with fungus), But if worse comes to worse, I would advise on using meds.
I would recommend Pimafix (Anti-fungal fish remedy) as a med for treating...
I think the apisto and angel would do fine together. Bu if any aggressoin occurs, just make sure to have hiding spots for the both of them.
You could add more to your stock plan, but What do you want?
Thats sounds like a great stock to me. As far as the otos, I would wait to put them in until your aqarium is established (2-3 months after cycle).
Im not sure about the Apistogramma Trifascita. Ive heard they need to be in groups of 2-3 (1m-2f), But Im sure they will be fine on their own...
Possible cause and treatment for hair algae:
Nutrients often build up in areas with low water movement. Increasing the flow will help prevent local build up of nutrients.
Manual removal is a good way to get rid of Hair Algae. Manual removal will work, but...
Does you mollys spots happen to look like your she has salt on her lips.
Im thinking its mouth fungus (Cotton like growths on the body that may appear white or gray in color.) If it is, I would recommend to do 25-50% water changes everyday (Clean water helps with the fungus) If worse comes to...
It looks to me that you have Diatoms and some hair algae. Like danni said, diatoms come from a tank that has been setup for less than a year and they also occur when there is not enough lighting.
The only time I'd had problems with algae growing over everything was just after I'd uprated my...

Ive heard that when you feed discus Beefheart, thawed bloodworms, etc That it gets quite messy and takes some time to clean up. I dont have any discus but I want some (13 yr old budget ), but someday....:whistling:
Welcome to fishlore!
I would add the neons (Bring the school up to 6), Add the Pristellas (Make school to 6), the bamboo shrimp,The honeys and the Badis in and I think that would pretty much make you stocked
As for the hillstream loach, The first thing you should know about these amazing...
Maybe as fry, but If it is a permanant home, I highly disagree that would work, even with the right filtration. Aggression would get out of hand and stunted growth .
OP: Im not sure what tank size you have, Could you happen to tell us.
You could, But I wouldnt recommend it.
If you do go ahead and decide to get the danios, I would recommend to only add 1-3 at a time.
Also with the fish being in the tank, You will need to keep the ammonia and nitrite levels down, So I would recommend to do 25-50% water changes everyday...
Yep, I believe so.
First your ammonia is suppose to go up, once the nitrite goes up, the ammonia goes down, then once the nitrates go up,the nitrites go. After thats all over, it should give you 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and 5-20 nitrates.
As for the tetra safestart, its purpose is to be used with...
