    jina please give members a chance to need to keep posting help
    how many fish are in your tank and how many gallons is it? guppies should be stocked 1male to 3-4females ...usually the attacking is the other way keep one in a breeders net until they heal up which can be done with prestine water changes and some stress coat ....

    Hi Jina,
    Fish can get aggressive when they live in unsuitable conditions. If you look back at your other thread, you were given MANY suggestions by Lucy on what you could do to help your guppies.

    Your tank is 7.5 in x 4.3 in x 3.9 in. That comes to about 1/2 gallon, or around 2 liters. You don't have a heater or filter, and nothing to put oxygen in the water. I know you really want to keep fish, but without a better home for them, they won't do well.

    I know you wanted to buy more fish when your male guppy died. Can you please tell us how many guppies you have in the container now?
