I am new to the fish hobby. i've had my fish for about 2 months now. I have a five gallon tank with about 8 grown guppies, 5-10 baby guppies, 3 marbled mollies, and two orange dalamtion mollies ( 1 male, 1 female). I also have a empty 2 gallon one that I plan on setting up for my pregnant mommies in my tank - jus tunitl they give birth. I aslo have a dragon fish and rubber nosed algae eater. I know that I need a bigger tank for new babies. but they were unexpected- ia had two gold fish but they died. anyway, just wanted to introduce my fish and say hi

HI welcome to fishlore . Yes your tank is quite overstocked, check out the various articles on fishlore.com and the stickys in the beginners board

Welcome to Fishlore! You have like 4 times the number of fish you should have in there. By the way, dragon gobies get huge.

Welcome to fishlore We're fairly new to fish keeping ourselves, starting just after Christmas with our 1st Betta (a Christmas present to my wife). We have just finished a pregnancy with one of our Platys (she only had 3 batches fortunately - also unexpected. ).
Sounds like you have enough fish there to get a case of MTS (multiple tank syndrome).. we have that ourselves and are currently at 5 tanks. These fish have turned out to be better pets than I expected before we had any.
