    Was good guys. Im gonna add to my tank soon with 2 new fish and need help deciding which ones. Should I go for guppies or swordtails for the tank? I have 2 sunburst wag platys and 1 blue wag platy, a black molly, and a silver lyretail molly. Either gonna get 1 delta guppy and 1 tequila guppy, or 2 velvet wag swordtails.

    So new tank isn't cycled but has those other fish already? Sorry I'm confused...what size tank?

    Oh ok;) I sure like my swordtails but have never had guppies.

    Neither. You might be able to get Guppies if you rehome the Mollies, which should be in at least a 20 gallon tank. Swordtails are very active and get large, and need at least a 30" long tank, though 36" is what I usually recommend as minimum.

    Ah before his edit I assumed this would be a new tank once cycled....I agree your 10 gallon is already full if this is the case
