    I have 3 platys and 3 guppies in my 29-gallon tank and one of the platys (The biggest one) bullies the other 2 platys (He chases them if they come close to him). Would putting that platy in a mesh breeder box help?

    Yes, I didn't get any females because when I have my full stock in the aquarium, it will be %100 stocked and I didn't want any fry

    Well that's your problem. I would add more hiding places and if the problem persists I would rehome the aggressive fish.

    This is a picture of my tank, sorry for bad quality:

    Would you say these are not enough hiding places?

    I think it's OK. The large male is asserting his dominance, and the others will soon learn to stay away. You have more than enough hiding places so I would let it be as long as the big male doesn't actually injure any fish.
