Hey FishLore! I need some advice on stocking my 10 gallon cycled tank. I have asked around on other fish forums, and mostly got a yes (on my question) but FishLore is by far my favorite and IMO, most knowledgeable. I have been researching many different fresh water fish, and have decided that guppies are best for my tank. They had all the qualities I needed; easy to keep, not aggressive (in most circumstances), and don’t need CONSTANT supervision. I have been researching them for a little over 3 weeks, while I was waiting for my tank to cycle, and found that they only have one major problem: if you keep males and females in the same tank, they spawn like CRAZY. I don’t want to do a same sex tank, because the females are kind of drab and I have had many people tell me that males can get aggressive towards each other when kept without females. I am planning to put 1 male and 2 females, as the male needs to be outnumbered by females, (also so I can keep some fry ) but don’t want to be overrun with fry. I was thinking that if I put a female betta in the tank, she would control the population a bit. I do have a backup 5 gallon on hand, so I would be ready if she turned out to be aggressive with the guppies, but otherwise would that work? I do need someway to get rid of the fry, and there is no LFSs in my area that accept donations or buy from any home breeders. Please no hate comments. I wish I could keep all of the fry, and I will make sure to provide adequate hiding places for them so they have a chance. I am accepting any advice you guys may have. Thank you for taking the time to read my thread.
