So it's been a week since my water parameters have gotten to no ammonia and no nitrites.. nitrates settled down to a healthy range.

I picked up some fish after my water change. Not sure if it's because of the prime but my levels were still good tonight when I tested.

I got some new guppies but found a female at the bottom and although she was a alive, her tail was chewed almost off. I isolated her in a breeder box but don't know if she has any chance of surviving. My male Dalmatian Molly has gotten aggressive with the additions.

The other guppies are fine and swimming around.

I think when I get my new tank in February I will dedicated it to only guppies.

I've heard people say to rearrange the decorations/wood/rocks/whatever in the tank to remove their territorial issues. Maybe the new guppy ventured into "his" spot.

Congrats on the cycle!

thanks Terra I'm so happy it's cycled. not going to miss the daily water changes. lol

that's a good idea about rearranging the decor... I haven't seen him favor a spot before but I don't see what they do at lights out. I'll give that a try.

I'm sure the fish will die.. fins don't grow back do they?

That question's been asked quite a bunch around here, and the concensus is yep, they usually do as long as there's still some nub left to grow on.

My first betta I got had a pretty ratty tail, dunno if he chewed it off himself or what, but it wasn't so pretty. It was much improved after only 1 week, and perfect now

I'm planning on a guppy tank in February! I want to take time and properly plan it out. get the tank established with plants before adding the guppies.

thanks for the condolences.... only other fish lovers would understand.
