Guppies Bugging My New Platties

I just added three Reg Wag Platties to my 12 gallon tank. My three male fancy guppies won't leave them alone. I don't know the sex of the platties but hate seeing them bugged by the guppies all the time. I have driftwood and real plants for my fish to hide or get away, yet they choose to hang-out in the open and get bugged! Weird eh (this is the Canadian type of eh by the way!) ......

This is day two of the Guppies/Platties war.

PS my guppies are always the fish that cause conflict in my tank. Everyone else just "get along" fine.

I have 3 headlight tetras, 1 albino catfish, 2 Chinese algae eaters, 3 fancy male guppies, 3 reg wag platties.

to sex your Platies the analfin on female is fan shaped and on males it is thin and pointy think of it as kinda looking like a sward.

it is best to keep not less that two females for each male.
I have 3 female of each of my males so not just one female gets harrased to much.
All paties do is eat...poop...make babies...and make us smile but they don't care about that.

I have heard of this same thing happening before, although from all that I have read guppys and platies should get along fine. I was thinking about adding some guppys with my platies but I'm starting to think that over again
