    I just moved my tank and now my two guppy males are picking on my female platy. It looks like they are nipping her but her fins look fine. Is there anything to be done about this?

    They are probably trying to mate with her. Livebearer ratios should be at least 2 females for every male, or else the males can harass the female literally to death.

    you could get 4-6 females or put a divider in the tank.

    So even though its guppies and platies they will try and mate with each other? They seemed to be fine before the move.
