Wow, it's been forever since I was on here last! Life's too busy. My 10-gal tank is doing great. My 2 Red Platies, 2 Guppies and 2 Guppy fry (now almost an inch long and still really cute!!) are doing great. The Guppy with that mysterious disease has recovered...I still don't know what was wrong with her, but I'm glad that all my fish are healthy. I haven't added any new fish...grrrr. Every time I went to the only pet store with Red Platies, they were all sick...which meens no males...which means no breeding I've given up on breeding since I can't find any male Platies, and I can't just get a male Guppy because I'll end up with hybrids, and no store will take those. So...I've just decided to keep my 2 fry, who I've grown rather fond of, and then see what other fish to add to my tank. My tank: 2 Platies (I don't think they mind being the only 2--they shoal with the Guppies) 4 Guppies 4.4 inches of fish left for my tank, taking into account my fishes' adult sizes mature biological filtration--4 mths since I added 1st fish after cycling my water is alkaline lots of fake plants and small, smooth gravel can go with or without salt added to water good aeration; decent filtration 10 gallons Any ideas of what fish I could get to fill the remaining 4.4 inches? It doesn't seem to leave a whole lot of options. I would like to get something besides livebearers if possible. Thanks for any ideas...oops--I gotta go now!
