I have newer 10 gallon tank. I have a black lyre tail molly and a guppy left from the first batch. I added 2 more guppies and a platinum lyre tail molly today. The black molly (Its kind of big, abt 3") seem to be nipping those guppies. What should I do?

Also, do I have too many fish in my tank?

thanks,
Jetta.

Re: black lyre tail molly in10g tank.

Your tank is pretty full, and you should not add any more fish, especially if the tank is not cycled. Are you keeping tabs on your ammonia and nitrite levels? Elevated levels can cause your fish to act wierd. If the nipping doesn't stop, you will have to move some fish.

Re: black lyre tail molly in10g tank.

thanks Gunnie. No, I am not adding any more fish. ammonia/nitrite/nitrate are all within the safe limits. So, hopefully the cycle is complete. Its been little over 3 weeks. Nipping seemed to stop today. I also, don't have any plants in my tank (just one rock and one plastic plant). I am thinking about adding more plants, but I have my mind setup on a 30 gallon tank so that my mollies can have more room as they grow.
